It would be nice to have an option to expand just the current thread,
and of course reverse the process when done. This would act
independently of the visibility of the rest of the folder.
There already exist "Expand all threads" and "Collapse all threads". The
former has no keyboard equivalent, the latter is Shift-Ctrl-B. Perhaps
we could have one more shortcut for Expand/Collapse Current Thread,
acting as a toggle. I have no particular suggestion as to what it should

I like this idea. For some time, I've been thinking about storing state
of each thread (collapsed/expanded), so that you could collapse loooong
boring threads in (especially in mailing lists) that you are not
interested in and Evo would remember that.
I think these two features can be merge to one task. Maybe you could add
it to the bugzilla request. When I finish my current task, I'd can
start working on this.
