In light of a lot of the visual changes that were rolled out, and the variety of responses to them, if there isn't intent to do a full revert back to the previous version of the UI, I'd strongly suggest creating additional settings that allow users to pick and choose which visual changes they do and do not want.
For instance, as someone with issues in focus, who skims a lot more than they properly read, I need the horizontal breaks in between message groups. But some people like the new layout.
Choice is key to a happy userbase when making changes like these; setting toggles are perhaps the best way to move forward with changes while preserving users' ability to veto or opt-out of changes they do not want.
