most important, visibility of important threads over a longer period of time.
there would be a subforum "Proposed libraries", with threads with new messages
at the top.

I understand that there is no difference from a technical viewpoint and that
some mailreaders can display a mailing list exactly like that, but I don't
think a proposal like lockfree would have been fergotten on a board.
you rarely see replies to threads more than two weeks old on this mailing
list, so people do read it either on a day to day basis, or not at all.
