Disagree with this statement - I toggle all the time.  But the real  
reason is I disagree with this statement:

That is not what I want.  I don't want my last toggle view to be  
sticky.  I generally toggle only to see headers for certain messages -  
I don't want fuller header information most of the time because what I  
care about is the preview text.  So when I toggle a header, I don't  
want that toggle to be permanent - I only want the current message to  
be toggled. (I think there is a bug now that doesn't toggle back on  
the next message view, but at least the toggle state isn't carried  
over across sessions).

So thinking about this more, I am back to my original decision: I  
think there should be a preference over whether you want open or  
closed by default and that's it.  No cookie/pref switching on toggle.   
You could add a "Remember last view" option, but that's starting to  
add a bit of complexity.
