From about 10 mailing lists I'm subscribed to (nginx, memcached,
mercurial, various freebsd lists, ...) only nginx-announce@ and
nginx-ru-announce@ has prefix added. So from my point of view
prefix isn't something common, and mostly used for low-traffic
lists.

Overral I don't think that adding a prefix for nginx@ (nginx-ru@,
nginx-devel@) will make me happy.
