[MlMt] Ordering of messages in a conversation

I currently think, that the versatile list of the conversation created 
after clicking on the "Thread" button is really a great solution. Imho 
it outperforms the concept of the concatenated conversation view! This 
view is a bit problematic when the history of the conversation is 
contained as quotation in the mail as well, which is often the case. 
Then you have to wrap the quotes etc. unwrap the quotes, all by mouse, 
and sometimes you do *not* want to have conversation view etc… not 
solved perfectly by other clients as well. But the by-thread list is 
nice, I've now bound "showThread" to a key and have it all on demand, 
versatile and neat.

Right now, I'm quite happy with your application, its time I admit that
