That usually makes it easier to grasp what you're trying to convey, imho..

RFC 2822:
   The "In-Reply-To:" field will contain the contents of the "Message-
   ID:" field of the message to which this one is a reply (the "parent
   message"). If there is more than one parent message, then the "In-
   Reply-To:" field will contain the contents of all of the parents'
   "Message-ID:" fields. If there is no "Message-ID:" field in any of
   the parent messages, then the new message will have no "In-Reply-To:"
   field.

So optimally, I guess you should bug those who make your e-mail
application to make an "include inline reply to <this> message also"
button, which would preserve threading as mentioned in above rfc *and*
allow you to keep the number of messages down :-).

Maybe worth a feature request for google mail, since aside from this
they've got excellent conversation threading already...
