updates to new rdbms

Gmail is the best UI for reading and keeping up to date with a mailing
list ever.  It's perfect, each thread is one item in the list of
"emails" and it remembers which ones you've already read, and you can
go back to the beginning of the thread without searching - it's all
right there.

This particular UI enhancement is _the_ killer app in gmail for me.

I also vote for keeping things on list.  Filtering can filter out
threads you dont participate in and leave those you have in your
inbox.
