Show archived messages in conversation

"Show in conversation" should show archived messages in the conversation as well as unarchived. Otherwise, I have to leave all messages lying around in my Inbox until I'm sure the thread is over if I ever want to go back and see what's come before. Also this feature should be available from the message preview. The fact that gmail brings back the whole thread when a new message arrives (even the archived messages) is what makes archiving work. You have to make it attractive to archive stuff or people won't use it. For many people, if they think they'll have to do some complicated search to get back to the whole thread, archiving is heavily disincentivized.

I can't keep my inbox from filling up.
