You had asked if anyone actually uses the References header for threading,
and it turns out the answer here is "yes!".

Yeah, I mean ... I think that came over from Usenet, right?  I remember
the trn mail reader had a nice ASCII display that showed the message tree.
I admit that for me, a message "thread" sounds kind of linear, where a
"tree" is probably closer to the reality.  I guess it's a set of messages
which are all replies to one another.
