Oh good. Because the Python core-devs are talking about moving to 
Github's web interface instead of email. Because Github is the future :-)

Indeed. Gmail conversations are really good, right up to the moment when 
they're not and you want real threading, and then you're screwed 
seventeen ways to Sunday.

I especially love the way occasionally Gmail will decide that an email 
you sent to Joe Blogs with subject line "Let's go fishing!" and an email 
you sent to Peter Parker with subject line "Where's the beef?" belong to 
the same conversation, and as far as I can tell there's no way to 
convince it otherwise.
