I would expect that it would do both. And I belive I am using such a
browser. I would just consider it "better form" for all messages to be
tagged in someway with identification that is immediately noticeably. If
the system that has been implemented by Dan doesn't work (IE the subjects
get too long with garbage) or if anyone really can't deal with longish
subject lines, then we can have it killed and everyone who wants to can
sort with headers.

Of course, many of our newbier Gone Home users (when they come) won't
really like that.

Lets see how things work out.
