Most modern mail clients seem to cache this information in local
files, same as they do with index info (to avoid having to parse a
potentially huge mbox file every time they visit a folder).

Of course I do. I have nothing against the References header. My only
point is that In-Reply-To is still very much in use.

This is really getting quite OT. The original issue was that Subject
threading is only ever used as a last resort (at least in Linux/Unix
clients) so people messing with it in the hope of changing the thread
topology are wasting their own and everyone else's time.
