I don't think +conversation will be necessary because probably a few 
misplaced messages in a conversation thread isn't a showstopper (and it 
can happen with +conversation too, although it's likely more rare).

But I *do* think +conversation is useful for other reasons that we might 
want to consider: the big one being that people can then unsubscribe 
from conversations they hate without having to leave the list or write 
their own filters.  Systers has a clickable "leave this conversation" 
link and it's pretty darned slick.  Having used our existing "topics" 
interface extensively on another list, I'd like to see +conversation 
used to augment our current topic structure.
