well, it doesn't take the "References" or "In-reply-to" headers
into account.

but more importantly, there's no way to easily view messages in a
sequence (like your "thread", above), sequentially, right?  if
not, then simply getting the message numbers of the thread isn't
all that useful, since i still can't easily read them in order. 

i want to isolate the thread, and then be able to prev and next
through it.  so i think your method might be okay, if there were
a "-seq" option to prev and next, which meant "next in sequence".

(as always, i'm happy to be corrected, if someone can show me
how to write a "threadnext" or "threadprev" alias using existing
