Introduce a Thread View Mode while reading messages. Use '*' to toggle.
Any alpha-char command or entering a message number will exit thread view mode. If the entire thread fits on the screen, then the arrow keys can be used to move about the thread (up, down, left, and right). The old thread-ID keys ( and ) still work, but a little differently. And while in Thread View Mode, ENTER and - keys now move forward and backward by thread. I meant to do this a long time ago and really should have (all the underlying thread support was there). It really highlights all the network nodes that don't support REPLY-IDs. :-(
