Question about the prepending of the prefix...

Love the concept of this but the pre-pending of the prefix to the subject is a terrible idea IMO...or at least there should be an option to not do that. The reason I say that is because my main use for this is to have pre-filled template options for topic subjects for specific forums that use repetitive/similar topic subjects. So for example, when the topic is created, I want the prefix to appear in the subject when selected and then for that to be the end of what it does. In practice, if say I have a prefix called MLB Season Week, when I select that, and then add the season number/week number so say MLB Season1 Week 1, I get MLB Season Week MLB Season1 Week 1 as the new topic title upon submission. I know I can comment out the prepending of the prefix in the listener.php file, and handle the going back to old topics when the prefix is changed as well, but is there perhaps a simpler way to just chop this apart to be at its simplest form (which is just a list of templates for the subject in the specified forum)?
