Either that, or I'm missing an obvious way to do it!

I'm looking at the gtk+ code right now to get a sense of how big a job
it would be.

That works for the initial threading, but we also need to rethread when
new messages arrive, preferably without rebuilding the tree from
scratch. We *could* go to separate methods for each action, but that
would be annoying! All in all, getting the natural capabilities into
the gtk+ code seems like the better route.
