there are people with the bad habit of sending emails without a subject. this is
not too bad if you know only one of them, 'cause then all his/her mails are
collected in one thread, but if you have several of them, you end up having a
huge thread at the 'old'-end of your list.
i suggest that there be a (user-defined?) list of regexps, and if a subject
matches this regexp, it is not considered part of a thread. ^$ should be
definitely part of the list, i think it wouldn't be wrong to add ^(no subject)$
to it.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. send yourself several emails w/o subject from various email-addresses
2. configure mozilla/mail to display your mails in threads
