No objection from me. But please don't hijack threads (i.e. don't reply 
to completely unrelated messages). As you are using KMail you have 
several ways to open a new message to kde-core-devel. If you anyway 
already selected a kde-core-devel message then simply left click on the 
highlighted kde-core-devel at to create a new message.

BTW, as KMail now has the possibility to apply filter actions manually 
(Message->Apply Filter Actions >) the following filter can be used with 
the latest cvs version of KMail to break hijacked threads:

Filter Criteria:
Simply leave it empty

Filter Actions:
[remove header]   In-Reply-To
[remove header]   References

Apply this filter [ ] ... [ ] ... [ ] ...
[ ] If this filter matches ...
[x] Show Message menu Apply Filter Actions menu item for this filter

As this filter will be shown in the menus you should also give the 
filter a meaningfull name. And as a KAction will be created for this 
filter it's possible to define a keyboard shortcut and to add it to the 
toolbar (without icon).
