I am currently writing a module that will provide automatic
links for quotes in mail, digests and news articles.  I found
it annoying in the extreme when I know the thread and what people
have written, to have it quoted back and one or two lines added.
It is even more important when reading digests et al that are older -
ie. the whole thread is available to you and you are just wandering
around it.  Hopefully available sometime soon as I am slowly getting
some more time to devote to it...
