We should show a message in opened conversations when a new day starts.

Some thoughts:

- Is one generally scrolling upwards, i.e. more interested in what date the previous conversation happened, than the one one is already reading?

- Is it therefore better to have two messages, one at the end of each conversation, one at the beginning? (If the previous conversation is shown as context, Time bubbles will print the intervening timespan in between them)

- Should there be a message with the date at the top of every new conversation?

The use case I know is: I've been away for a few days and there are unread messages that appeared in the last few days and I've no way to know when.

I would suggest showing a system message with the date of the new message each time we display a message that isn't from the same day as the one immediately before.
