I often use `/ n' followed by `/ T' to limit summary articles to the
current thread.  This seems to pull all the messages of the thread into
the summary buffer, including older ones.

Then when I'm done I pop the summary limit twice, by typing `/ w / w',
and (optionally) hide the old/deleted messages with `x'.

Maybe this is more useful than `A T'?
