I read the digest versions of Racket mailing lists, and I have to 
explicitly do this (as with this message) by manually copying the 
Message-ID field. Furthermore, I had to learn how to configure 
Thunderbird to give me the choice of an In-Reply-To header field to copy 
the message ID into. (And I have to manually copy subject and quoted 
text, but that's more straightforward.)

I know, I should move into the twenty-first century some time, and set 
up proper mail filters, so that I wouldn't need the digest. But I 
suspect then I would never get around to reading individual messages.

By the way, I have learned important lessons from this thread and its 
predecessor about how to respond rationally to criticism. My compliments 
to all involved. --PR
