I concur.  I keep all my Gaim (and Pidgin) mail in one mailbox, so that
threading when someone switches mailing lists is maintained, and I like
the consistent indicator in the subject on which mailing list a
particular item appeared.  However, since all the subject lines now will
start with "Revision" I suppose I can still draw the same conclusion.

Thunderbird shows the diffs inline either way, so it doesn't matter to me.
