Evolution has a long history of eating mailboxes. When a serious
bug commonly affects users and goes unfixed for years, one should
have quite a bit of doubt about the code.
Evolution also happens to mangle mail in ways that hinder full
participation in many Open Source mailing lists.
Really, this code is not a candidate for reuse.

GMail conversations are a poor substitute for real threading.
See jwz's site for the proper algorithm. (Google: jwz threading)
