binding ctrl-delete or something sane like that to "delete thread" would help the usability of mailnews quite a bit Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17 i686; en-US; m18) Gecko/20001018
recommend wontfix, but cc mpt for opinion.

Nah. The cost-benefit ratio is too high, IMO. The cost is the risk of deleting a large number of messages if you accidentally had the Control key down when you went to delete a single message. As for the benefits, this would only really be of use if you were subscribed to high-traffic mailing lists. Even then, you could use either (a) the keyboard shortcut for select thread (is/will there be one?), followed by Delete, or (b) Shift+Down to make an extended selection in the thread pane, followed by Delete.
I'm marking WON'T FIX. Don't sue me ;-).

VERIFIED, this idea seems too dangerous.

I would also like this. It need not be the default configuration, but it would be useful if the user could make this work somehow. If there is a way to map a key combination to a sequence of key combinations, perhaps the user could do: "control-delete = shift-down, delete".
