Gnus: Forwarding mails: include attachments, blank To:, point position?

Hi,

I figured out that with "F" (or "f") I can forward an email. There are three 
things which I wonder about:

1) Why are attachments not included in forwarded emails (at least I do not see 
them as attachments)? How can I automagically include attachments?
The reason is simple: It is easy to delete the attachments in case they are 
unwanted, but it's more work to attach them (which is often what I want when 
forwarding emails).

2) The forwarded email contains the original sender as "To:". Since this is 
almost never the person you want to forward the message to (otherwise one would 
have chosen a reply instead), one always has to delete this address first. Is 
it possible to have a blank field "To:" as default in forwarded emails?

3) A forwarded mail (but also a reply) in which the original email text is 
included, looks like this:
--text follows this line--
Sender Name <address@hidden> writes:

(*)> Hi, I just wanted to write to you because ...
>
> Regards
>
> John

The point, by default, is at (*). Is it possible to have the point in the 
beginning of the line after "--text follows this line--", then a newline, then 
"Sender Name..."? Because either you want to just answer the whole mail (for 
which this position would be perfect) or you want to answer a specific part 
(for which you would have to move the point anyway). But having the point where 
it is by default is not ideal for any of these situations.

Cheers,

Marius
