Yes, but this does grouping, as I mentioned before.
That is still really just a flat view.  Or at least, an ordered list of flat views. :)

Had a quick look - how hard do you think it would be to make the algorithm handle incremental updates (i.e. new messages showing and deleted messages vanishing)?  That is probably the only thing we'd need in the mailer.

I still think users will want more than just grouping though.  I for one wouldn't find it useful, the way i use mail.  But the vertical paned view is a winner.

Thats my suggestion, yes.
I'll try to look into it for the mailer when I get time, but its a bit short at the moment, leave and all :(

The issue is very simple: do not put pointers to MonoObject* in the
stack to avoid doing the #include <pthread.h>, if you need to keep a
pointer to a MonoObject, do it on the heap or a structure.

ahh neat.  last time i asked anybody (in nyc) nobody had any idea, and i couldn't find you at the time.
