A lot of people have mentioned the digestified version of
-questions. That, plus a UMA that can dedigestify and sort messages
(VM will do that) is one possible solution to the problem.

Another is to read the messages as a newsgroup. Most newsreaders
thread these days, so you should get sorted messages out of that. It
doesn't necessarily work well for answering questions because of the
missing Cc: headers.
