Speaking of email clients that you "like" - are there any FOSS
projects working on a gmail-like web-based client?

I tried using gmail some and I've found that its workflow is a LOT
nicer on something like a laptop, where drag-and-drop is a royal pain.
 The tag and search vs folder approach is a lot easier since you don't
have to spend a lot of time fiddling with the laptop sorting every
email that comes in.

I'd really like an open-source email client where I can just click on
the first message in my inbox, and use pgup/pgdown/e/# to run through
the whole thing.  I spend a lot more time on content and less on
fiddling with organization that way.

Bonus points if it actually threads the emails and doesn't dump them
into a big linear chain (my one pet peeve with Gmail - unless I'm
missing something).
