Strictly speaking, it's pipermail that does any threading, which I
don't use (I use MHonArc, which doesn't thread as well as Jamie's
algorithm, but has the advantage that Somebody Else Installs and
Maintains It).  Not Mailman.

So I don't know.

However, the important word there was "Perl", which the OP knows.  I
have a feeling that even an algorithm whose results The Great Jamie
Zawinksi reluctantly admits are never less than thrilling<wink> might
not be tuned to the OP's needs.

So he might want to use a hackable CPAN module rather than a Python
implementation distributed with Mailman.
