Going off on a tangent here, I've been thinking about detecting
and displaying Subject-Says-It-All (SSIA) emails in a more
concise way for public-inbox.

That would give some benefits of chat and save readers' time in
having less text to wade through; while still retaining
threading and offline capability of email.

I'm not aware of any existing MUAs which support, it, though;
so I'm hesitant to have public-inbox be the first...

Not sure how those orgs operate, but I find synchronous
communication tiring and difficult when people are operating
between several different timezones.  It's especially difficult
when several topics are being discussed in parallel.

I still use IRC privately, but only with small groups and mostly
for non-technical topics ("watercooler talk"); but some of my
fellow chatters have been wanting to move over to proprietary
replacements :<
