Although the B2G e-mail app is message-centric for the time being, we
will likely go conversation-centric again in the future. During my most
recent investigations of modern IMAP servers, I saw that Cyrus is
working on explicit support for conversations, possibly as a new
standard extension (XCONVERSATIONS?). Because conversations are most
problematic for mobile devices that don't want to sync the entire
contents of a folder, this is especially interesting for me and B2G
email. Probably less so for Thunderbird since only the global database
cares about conversations and its desire to work cross-account means it
might not benefit so much.
The replica work sounds very interesting; does it only support 100%
replicas, or does it support subsets?
