Sigh.  Have you LOOKED at the mhl code, Ralph?  And have you really looked
at now "quoting" of email works?  (Short answer: it's misusing existing
component handling).  If someone else wants to tackle it, fine ... but I have
to admit that I'm not interested.  mhl needs a complete rototilling to
handle MIME properly, and quoting would be part of that.


- Does an extra space on a blank line really hurt anything?
- How come you're not using replyfilter? :-)
