Most mailreaders these days thread not on the subject, but on the 
References: or In-Reply-To: headers or stuff like that.  But out
of consideration to ones that thread on Subject:, one can solve
this the way Usenet folks have for ages -- use the "was:" convention.
e.g. given a thread with subject

Subject:  fgrun improvements

when someone in the thread starts to discuss lighting, they can
change the subject line to

Subject  enhanced lighting fps (was: fgrun improvements)

If *that* isn't enough, then we're talking about trying to accomodate
bugged/broken mail readers.
