You make an interesting point however the problem is people reply to this
list using Email, Newsgroup and Web-based clients.  The clients don't all
put the same information in their headers and they don't all understand the
same headers.  If it were strictly a newsgroup list or strictly an email
list or strictly a web-based list then Yes you would have a valid point.
But if the list is to remain open to these different portals then you are
going to have to live with the occasional broken thread.

Case in point... => ME <=... I only recently moved from an Email client to a
Newsgroup client to view this list and I had no idea what-so-ever that any
of my replies were breaking threads.  It was a real eye opener.  :-)
