Imagine a thread with 3 messages:

A
|-B
 |-C

Now B is superseded by B'. The thread will look like:

A
|--C
|-B'

Thunderbird should use the Supersedes: header to put B' in the place of B (and provide some UI to indicate that the replies were not originally to B' but to another, deleted, message for which B' is the replacement.

Hi, Sorry for my bad English.

Product should be MailNews Core instead of Thunderbird and it is not platform dependent.

And this bug should be referenced by  bug #176238 : Make Mozilla not suck as a newsreader
