Yes that would be nice.

I believe it is possible, but requires code additions/changes.
Also, generation of the index may be slower since extra processing
is needed to determing reply counts.

I would think that it requires an option flag for this

How come that it takes more (you are right) - actually
it is very close to the threaded index-file, however
the lumps of replies are sorted differently.
