Re: [Evolution] "Unread threads" view suggestion.

Well this feature, or at least somethng that would make this feature
feasable has been contemplated before.  Might even be a bug in the back
tracker about it, I just never got around to doing anything on it.
vfolder/search on thread was the issue.

Personally i just switch to unthreaded mode and goto the bottom of the
list, or just ignore all those high traffic lists - its usually just
flames anyway !

Im getting quite a lot of mailing list message and evolution is really

Many of these mailing lists have many open threads going on and thus i
have to scroll up and down alot even to find new messages. So, what i
could do in this point is to set up a view with search criteria =
"status" "is not" "read" .. This is ok for low traffic lists but not
good at all for high volume devel lists that im on.

So, i started to wonder, could this feature be extend into state that i
i could have a view of "threads that have unread messages". 

Ok, now this could be really really great (yeah, we had talk about this
with ettore and gman in irc and they agreed, i think =) )  but with very
very very high traffic lists even this could be not enough so, the
absolutely best way could be that not so so full thread but user defined
amount of previous and succeeding branchess of that thread.. Here's a
little ascii chart that i threw up as example if someone does not
understand my point. 

We have this kind of message thread:

|-- b
|   `-- c
|       `-- d
|-- f
`-- g
    |-- h
    |   `-- i
    |-- j
    `-- k

Lets say that message 'h' is unread.. and user-setable value for
previous message per thread is 1, our view of unread messages could
(notice the word) result message thread like this:

|-- h
|   `-- i
|-- j
`-- k
