I still think the fact that they're restricted to numerical ascending
order makes them useless for a serious threading implementation.

Isn't that broken because it will sort an entire thread tree by
date (say) rather than by thread and then only by date within

I think that if you want to keep the threading support out of the main
nmh utilities (scan/show/etc) you need to at least add an option to them
to respect the order of message numbers on the command line.
(But I still think that actually having the core utilities know about
threads would be better, in the same way that it's more convenient for
them to all know about syntaxes like '4-5', 'last:20', etc.)
