Having been a long time user of mutt, I find that gmail's "threading" is seriously lacking.
Unless I've missed something (and I may have), it simply groups messages based on the
subject line. Change the subject and gmail thinks that it's a different "conversation".
Further, gmail obscures the tree structure in the thread. You can't readily tell which
message was replied to, making it hard to keep track of a heavily branched thread.
On the other hand, I agree with the remainder of the positives. The lack of true threading
is a sore subject with me.
