Could replies also link the thread's root node?

I'd find it really handy if a reply node not only contained a link to its immediate parent node, as it does now, but also to the root node for the thread.

A lot of times, I'll come into a reply from the Newest Nodes page and want to review the whole flow of the discussion. Right now, I don't see any way to get back to the originating node apart from clicking back through all the "RE: Re: Re:" nodes one-by-one. Am I missing something?

    Yours isn't the first request for such a feature: see previous Discussions here and here. I personally would favor it as an option, though I doubt I would use it all too often. Is this on the todo list, vroom?
      I can't help but wonder if it might be particularly useful to implement a public "PerlMonks todo list" ... (even before the thread's root node option) ... It would be a good place to describe a prioritized group of features awaiting implementation. Maybe new suggestions could be made and discussed and voted (or moderated) into the list there. Monks might be able to post potential methods and code for accomplishing some of the more complex requests that would be significantly useful (to assist our hiro, vroom, as much as possible). Also, new discussions elsewhere for rehashed recommendations could be directed to the section. What do my fellow monks think? TTFN.
