thanks.  given this start, and some ideas from the mhonarc script
mha-mhedit (which does a more complete job of text extraction), i
came up with the following.  add it as "repl:  -edit
mh.repledit".  make sure that your replcomps file ends in a blank
line to make extracting the header part of the draft easy.  also,
be sure and include a new "mh.repledit-next:  vi" or whatever
line in .mh_profile, to keep this from being run twice on your

cat >mh.repledit <<EOF

CURRENT=$(mhpath cur)

# if the message being replied to is multipart, only quote the
# first part.  the first part will be quoted, regardless of its type.
if [ "$(sed  -e '/^$/,$d' $CURRENT |
        egrep -i '^content-type:[[:space:]]*multipart\/mixed' )" ]
    ( sed -n -e '1,/^$/p' $DRAFT
        mhshow -part 1 -form mhl.null -file $CURRENT |
        sed -e 1,2d -e 's/^/ > /'
    ) >$DRAFT.x
    mv $DRAFT.x $DRAFT

(echo ; cat $SIGFILE ) >> $DRAFT

vi "$@"
