The Clew meme dates back to 2003, when NYPHP was experimenting with
ways to re-implement Mailman as an OO-PHP solution. There's an
overview at http://www.nyphp.org/content/presentations/nyphp/, but
very little interest remained after that presentation, and we all went
on to do other things.

The nice thing about using some sort of tree (we called it a
nested-set model) for messages is that you get true threading--this is
a reply to that--rather than just a flat chronological list of
replies.

Very often, people just want the flat list as it is easier to follow.
