Not necessarily. For me at least, mutt shows proper branching
subthreads regardless of whether folks remember to modify the
subject when they're changing topics. But as you already pointed
out, expecting people to use available tools which solve these
problems is unrealistic--they'd rather keep using the tools they're
familiar with and then complain about the medium--asking for (or
better still, implementing themselves) improvements in the tools
they use is going to be the last thing they consider.
