Gmail's web interface has THE best approach to threading. Ever. If you
have any other suggestion (web client or linux desktop client) which
comes anywhere close please let me know. Evolution's threading just
doesn't cut it, thunderbird's new one is close, but thunderbird is
basically a mouse-only interface, the keyboard shortcuts are so
horrific (and muttator is an abortion of a project AFAICS).

I've spent quite some time exploring the options, and settled on this.
Ideas always welcome, of course.
