[replying to list because that's what Dominic did, I wouldn't otherwise]

Never mind, Jonathan's message was in my spam box.  (I'll look into the
cause of _that_ shortly).

Some MUAs are smart enough to handle the replying-to-digest case and
insert the proper threading headers.  They are unfortunately (?) not the
same ones as those smart enough to draw nice GUI sprites :P  Maybe you
can investigate that some time when you're bored.

But in general I have to say haskell.org lists are _a lot_ cleaner now
than a few years ago when pretty much _every_ thread was broken due to
ppl posting via shmooglegroups.

Please don't Cc: me privately on mailing lists and Usenet,
if you also post the followup to the list or newsgroup.
Do obvious transformation on domain to reply privately _only_ on Usenet.
