For all its virtues (probably countable on one hand), GMail still has
no support for threads after all these years. Trying to read lkml or
git is nigh impossible since all the PATCH x/50 threads are completely
disjointed. It simply groups mails naively by subject which is pretty
much objectively the wrong thing to do. (This also leads to a lot of
confusion when getting automated mails with the same subject line but
which aren't strictly related).
