That's down to the people, I can't do anything about it. All the mails
sent automatically have proper thread context derived from the one
they are responding to.

I can't do anything with pipermail archives; it is impossible to
figure out what the URL will be just by looking at the mail, since
it's constructed based on the sequence in which they are
received. Worse, the URLs are not necessarily stable over time.

I may feed the list into lurker at some point and reference that, but
there are other priorities at present.
