Because i'm starting simple?
Right now I'm not going to try to match all text in the message and all
the text in the <possibly compressed> attachments against a regular
expression to detect diffs.
Maybe later.

That's not what I suggested. Like matching Subject with a tag, you just match the absence of In-Reply-To in the header before looking closer.

But we don't *look* closer (IE the only validation we currently perform is the matching of [PATCH]).
Not all new threads on gcc-patches contain patches, so until i'm looking for diffs in mails, doing what you suggest would track more than just patches, it would track random started discussions without patches.
 For email to gcc-patches, that is.  You don't
look at email going elsewhere, I presume.  False positives, you
