E-Mail threading based on JWZ algorithm

branch: master
README
= jwz_threading

jwz_threading is a small ruby library which lets you order a list of E-Mails by conversation.
That is, grouping messages together in parent/child relationships based on which 
messages are replies to which others.

The library implements the JWZ E-Mail threading algorithm as described by Jamie Zawinski (http://www.jwz.org/doc/threading.html).

There is an IMAP extension Internet Draft available which decribes
the same here:
