Customize .vacation.msg to include subject, sender, etc?

Woops, that's not quite what I meant, sorry. I meant something like:

From: someone at somewhere
Subject: Re: {subject of message you sent}

Dear {email address of person who sent message},

You recently sent an email to {to address of messages}...

and so on. I realize the to address is often fixed, but I'm doing this
in virtusertable/aliases as: autoreply
autoreply: "|/usr/bin/vacation ..."

so the to address might be "abc at" for one message,
"xyz at" for another message, etc.

In other words, a true autoresponder.

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
