in thread RFC: Subscription to nodes

There is an option in User Settings, in the Miscellaneous section, to /msg me when there's a reply to one of my posts, which works well in notifying me of direct responses, but it doesn't tell me if someone responded to my responder with a correction.

Knowing whether the whole thread has any updates is different from knowing if you've been responded to personally. We have an existing option for the later, but the former sounds quite handy. I can spend even more time at the Monastery. :)

    Furthermore, I want to be notified if a given thread has updates. There are several wonderful topics that I may or may not have posted in, but I would love to follow. PM should make the hard things easy. :-)
