	Many mailers know how to prefix and indent quoted material, many
even know how to re-wrap it when the indentation pushes line length
conventions. They also tend to know about the dash-dash-space-newline
signature break convention and strip signatures on reply.

	Choice of mailer is every bit as personal and contentious as choice
of text editor - FWIW I use Sylpheed and vim because they've both failed to
irritate me much for many years now.
