I'm trying to figure out how to do recursion in a threaded discussion list
I'm writing in python, where every message has an id as follows "1_3_3_1".
The first number is the absolute parent, then the subparent (sorry, lack of
formal training prevents me from explaining it properly. hope this is clear

I would like to construct a html page that shows all these threads in a nice
and orderly fashion, but don't know how to go about setting up the recursion
you would get by pulling out subthreads, then parent threads, etc.

Does anyone have some general pointers as to how to go about doing this?
