I see no reason why it wouldn't be possible, but I think most people are
happy with underscore being just a mailing list and so doubt anyone
would want to invest the time creating such a solution. If you use a
decent email client that supports threading of subjects and have a
filter to move messages to a separate folder then underscore is
perfectly manageable despite the high volume of mails. Most email
clients can also be configured to only show recent messages in a given
folder, which means you can easily ignore old messages without having to
delete them (which means you can still have a handy searchable archive
of messages without using the web archive).
