Consider the space bar's current functionality: it jumps to the

thread but newer threads?
I think spacebar should just go down the list linearly however
they are sorted.
An option to reverse sorting direction could be added I
suppose, but... why do you say that your proposal seems
natural? Is it implemented that way elsewhere?
The threaded view is implemented that way, only its split between
two pages (page 1 lists threads latest first, page 2 sorts them
hierarchically. That's natural to me.
The horizontal-split mode (and its sorting direction) is not
I know, but I prefer the other views given its current
implementation (maybe others do too). But I would prefer the
horizontal-split if it worked more like threaded.
