I take it as a consensus that thread-date-sorting should be implemented--right?

Haven't seen any dissenting opinions

1. Should it replace head-date-sorting, or be a preference item (defaulting to thread-date)?

Replacing would keep it much simpler for (especially new) users.
Then the questions becomes threading or not.

2. Should we add an option to *not* gather threads by subject?

Would favour only by message id and "not* a fall-back by subject, to avoid the problem you outline below.
Having an occasional message shown outside its' thread is much less of a problem.
An option makes it more complicated.  If it exists, the default should be to *not* fall-back to subject.

I rather think the option may still be needed, perhaps for mailing lists?

3. Do we need simple threading?

One threading method is less confusing.


Thanks for the thoughts! Absent any last-minute objections, I'll merge the branch into master, replacing 
head-date by thread-date. I'll open a new branch for the more extensive changes involved in 2 and 3, which 
require UI and string changes.
