No, "bridge" should not be in [].  Lots of people's patch-receiving scripts
assume that any text in [] is to be removed as the patch is committed.  It
contains text which is only relevant to the particular email which carried
the patch.  Stuff like "patch" and "4/5" and "linux-2.6.23", etc.

Actually I usually remove the caps and the waste-of-space period, but
that's much less important than the brackets abuse.  The bracket convention
is quite useful and I've often wondered why I need to edit the patch title
when I merge up patches from net developers ;)
