some replies aren't really replies

One problem with using the In-reply-to message ids to determine threading is that many people (including myself) keep a large mail inbox. When we want to send an email to a person, we just scroll up to one they sent to us, and just reply to it, changing the subject line. This creates threads where there shouldn't be.

I don't know if this has come up in the past, or if there's any conceivable way to work with this - I'm just throwing it out here in case anyone's given it much thought.
