That could probably work too :)

I am not sure if it's the Right Thing, so I'll keep using the custom
thread-gathering function for now, unless some more experienced Gnus
user or developer wants to chime in with a more appropriate way of
achieving the same.

It was pretty easy to write the custom thread-gathering function.  I am
not sure I know enough about the internals of Gnus to modify the posting
style parsing code though :(
