follow with just a mouse click.
They're really hard to read though, because lines with e.g. gmail message IDs 
get very long even without that prefix.  Do you look at these in the e-mail or 

Mainly in Thunderbird. But it's cumbersome either way.

I agree gmail message IDs are ugly and insanely long. Personally I would rather pay the price of one line of ugliness for nice clickability.

To Tom's point that the URL might be ephemeral while the Message-ID is not, the URL would contain the Message-ID, so even if the base changed you could adjust to it.
