Since the hidden pref mail.thread_without_re heavily influences how mails are grouped (see Bug 89560) when the view is set to display threads, it would be very nice to have a possibility to change this setting using the preferences dialog.
This would allow users which interact most of the time with Outlook users (which doesn't insert the header fields for correct threading) to set this option to the current standard (AFAIR false) and those who don't, to build the thread view only by using the corresponding header fields (Message-ID, References, In-Reply-To).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Edit->Preferences
2. Change to Mail & Newsgroup
3. Check for an option which switches mail.thread_without_re on or off
Actual Results:  
There is /no/ ui option to set the pref mail.thread_without_re.

Expected Results:  
There is an ui option to set the ref mail.thread_without_re on and off.

AFAICT, this UI is still not present, so confirming on Trunk.

However, the whole Preferences UI are currently being moved to a different backend (which didn't exist on 1.1.x) so I don't expect this will ever be implemented on 1.x builds.

Adding a few CC to the people busy with the transition. Feel free to add more, or conversely to remove yourself.
