what you suggest makes sense of course, but it's still totally at will,
unrelated to any other behaviour the user might know or expect. So the
problem isn't resolvable as easy.
I'd clearly vote to disallow collapsing threads, as that would
eliminate many many usability problems balsa has. One could argue that
with a flat index, you can't minimize the number of messages anyways,
so threading still has an advantage for structuring. But I don't doubt
many people wouldn't want to miss that feature (that's what I'd expect
at least), and I have to respect that.
