#223 new enhancement

Add reply-quoted command

Description

Most mail clients, when you hit ctrl-r, will start composing an email back to the sender with the email you're replying to quoted for easy reference. For a chat client, this usually isn't very useful, but when a conversation has moved on since the message was sent, it is (and lots of people do it by hand).

It'd be neat if :reply-quoted on a message would start composing a reply to the current message, with the text of the current message quoted already.

Something similar for forwarding messages (where you plausibly also want to include more of the headers, and want to send to a different place) would be sorta nice, though the UI for letting you edit the destination and the message is a little non-obvious to me. (Also, :reply-quoted, ctrl-c, up and edit destination, enter, alt-p, edit text seems much less painful than dealing with the quoting, so just :reply-quoted would mostly leave me happy.)

I think we should consider merging this into master.
