"Threads" is a function of your mail reading client, not the mailing
list software. There's no way of moving a part of a discussion to its
own thread unless you can do it at your end. Replying to an e-mail will
add an 'In-Reply-To:' header, and your email program will then build an
artificial "thread" based on that. We could change the Subject on new
e-mails, but that won't break threading, only subject grouping, which is
a different thing.

(And, if speaking mailing list etiquette here, please set your Reply-To:
to exim-users@??? unless you really want the replies to not hit the
list. And don't top-post.)
