Note that the internal threading IDs *are* embedded in the HTML for
thread indexes:

    <!--0 01277935270- -->
    <LI><A HREF="101252.html">[Python-Dev] OS X buildbots: why am I skipping these tests?
    </A><A NAME="101252">&nbsp;</A>

    <!--1 01277935270-01277935581- -->
    <LI><A HREF="101253.html">[Python-Dev] OS X buildbots: why am I skipping these tests?

When quoting e-mails, Linux Weekly News includes the entire e-mail in
their CMS.  Maybe something similar could be done for PEPs, providing
a way to store and attach the entire e-mail giving a decision.
