And that's precisely why we let them use mouse-1 to follow links. I am not proposing to take that away from anyone

I am sure you not. I just thought this was a good time to ask for consistency regarding underline.

I object to that, and not just in this case. Nothing prevents you from starting
a new thread or filing a new bug, and even using "[was: Info header line does

It is a good idea.

It hasn't happened yet in this case, but injecting a new topic can cause threads
to diverge and the original topic to become lost. It happens quite often in
emacs-devel. Everyone has done it, including me. Very few people ever
intentionally hijack a thread, but it happens quite often unintentionally.

The risk is always there, but it is strongest when the new topic is more
controversial than the original - people jump in to argue about the sidetrack.

You have good points, but I think it unfortunately always is a difficult choice. Perhaps your own reply also illustrates that.
