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.

that's not so easy. The restriction on the folder prevents the message
list to know about all the thread messages, and there is no easy way to
rebuild the view with "all my previous filtering + thread of currently
selected message". Also note that once you get the message no longer
satisfying filter then you'll lose it from the view when regenerating

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.

Evolution does that, and it's fixed already, there was a problem with
folder not being created, thus the state saving failed. See [1] for more
