That was actually about lack of a References header, and I agree, that
there should be one (and we have one now, so that's a non-issue).

Some of the issue here, is that there's no concept of a "thread" in the
e-mail standards, and everyone defines it slightly differently.

For example, since there was a mention of that 2015 message of Ralph's
I have added a reference to that message in this one.   Does that make
that message (and perhaps the rest of that year old thread) a part of
this thread?   Beats me -- but ideally people should have an easier way
to find it than digging out the URL from the e-mail and giving it to
a browser (or having the e-mail client scan for things in the body that
look like they might be URLs, which I know some MUAs do, but is dangerous).

Me, certainly...
