No. A better phrasing might be rpys do not *have* to have anything to do
with CGIs. You can put any kind of Twisted Web resource in them, you
*happen* to have chosen to inherit from one that implements the CGI
behaviour so that you can use CGI scripts.

On most email clients, hit "Reply" when viewing the message you want to
thread under. The reply will be directed to
twisted-web at twistedmatrix.com via the Reply-To header that the mailing
list sets, but your new message will have the In-Reply-To header
required for correct threading. You can change the subject if you wish.
Some few mail clients (Outlook is the major offender) do not seem to do
