It would be nice if MailNews provided a fast way (via menu or hotkeys) to jump
along a reply chain: for a message that has Replied status, jump to a reply and
vise versa.

What exactly do you want:
A. to jump from a message in Inbox to its reply in Sent folder; or
B. to jump from a message in Inbox to another one in Inbox having the same subject?

B is possible using View->Sort by->Threaded.

Jump from Inbox to Sent and vice versa along a reply chain.

Disagree. I don't ask for combined thread view but for jumping ability.

Well, in order to have exactly what you ask, you need:
A. to implement the concept of threads across folders;
B. to have shortcuts to navigate a thread without viewing messages grouped by

A is the harder part and it's not trivial to implement; this is covered by bug
229568; what UI this feature will have will be decided only after A is solved,
and this can also be discussed in bug 229568.

So I think at least a dependency on bug 229568 is necessary.
