I think that was an accident on my part as it ran two reports on the
same day and the list server (or gmane) grouped them together. So I
guess if we want to take advantage of that for threading we would need
to remove the date from the subject.

Although doing that might make them less visible as they would be
grouped with really old threads. And some mail/thread readers would
place those way behind "current" messages.
