Heh, sorry I wasn't clear.  sbr/thread.c is mainly what I'm offering.
It builds a complete, hierarchical representation of all threads in
the input message set.

pickthread.c is probably not the way to go, despite how well it's
served me over the years; I included it for completeness, and so you'd
have something to immediately play with if interested.  It prints all
the messages in the specified set (or all) that are in the same thread
as cur; I stick that in a sequence and scan/show/sortm it, as desired.
 cur is hard-coded in pickthread.c due to laziness and/or
incompetence, but sbr/thread.c has no such limitation.  So, of course,
pickthread.c flattens the thread list.
