But I believe Charles' argument is that this is a Web Desktop 
application, not just another webmail project.  So it's meant to emulate 
a desktop app on the web.  I haven't noticed it, so I can't comment, but 
I can say that moving the selection to the next item is what I like in 
Thunderbird.  Perhaps this can be user definable: Move to next item on 
delete: Yes/No.
