There's a little bit of extra information that Mailman uses to detect 
threads.  The archives don't cluster messages based on the subject line, 
but instead use a specific header value whose name I'm completely 
forgetting right now... *grin* (I think it's the 'In-Reply-To' header 
line.)  Your email client should be the one responsible for maintaining 
that threading information.
