Yes, that's a drawback of using perl.  Long term, we want
to get it into C, so this wouldn't be an issue.

The default mhl.reply has this:

    body:component="> ",overflowtext="> ",overflowoffset=0

which prefixes the body lines.

I'm wondering if we should separate out the functions that
replyfilter does now:

    1) identify text/plain and text/html parts
    2) decode them if base64 or QP
    3) reformat them with an external filter(s)

(and whatever I missed) and see how we can control them
individually, and get it to fit better with the existing
repl filter mechanism.
