Attached image bugmail thread summary
message body snippets currently provided are unhelpful in cases were all or most messages begin with the same information. As in the case of messages that are: 
* form-like at the top, like bugmail
* where quoting is common and bottom posting is the norm

For all but the first message in a thread summary, it would be helpful if the "top", comment lines were skipped so that the snippet begins with "new" information.

Apart from hiding repeated content, would it make sense to not cut the snippets off? I.e. show everything and get a GMail-like view?
