When reading news, sometimes I'd like to mark the entire thread read without 
reading any of it.  There is a context menu item for Mark Thread Read, as well 
as Mark Message Read.  But Mark Message Read can also be accomplished by 
clicking in the Read/Unread column.

I would like to see Shift+Click in that column result in marking the thread

Pressing the letter "t" will also mark the thread as read and bring you to the
next article.  This is probably easier than shift + Click in the Read Column.
That is insufficient.  I do not want any message to be selected at the time I 
mark the thread read, just as the message does not need to be selected (nor is 
selected as a result) when you click in the Read column without a shift.
I mis-read your original description.

imho, this is also a valid use case for threads on mailing lists.
