With about 1 year of experience using mu4e-conversation, I found that it
works really well, actually better in most cases since it does not
"pollute" emails with forgotten citations.

Most people use Gmail or clients that support threading, in which case this is
really a good fit.

But really if we think about the workflow of "most people", then most of
the time citations are ignored (e.g. top-posting) and just pollute the
rest of the emails.  In those cases (the majority?) a non-threaded
workflow does not really work I think.
