Nope. That will definitely not work. Threading is controlled by
information in the message header that is not preserved in the messages
as *displayed* in either the pipermail web archives or the gossamer
archives (though as pointed out elsewhere, it is preserved if you
download an entire month's archive as an mbox-format file and import it
into your mail client).

Some mail clients can try to be a little smarter and thread based on the
subject line as well as the message headers. KMail has the ability to
do this, but it doesn't work 100% of the time.
