I’ve not tried your patch, but I like the idea. When using NMH, I like
to use a paragraph reformatter before sending, and fmt(1) was terrible
because (as you note) it can’t handle the reply quoting.

You may want to extend your idea a bit and do what par (ports/textproc/par)
does. This is a paragraph reformatter that takes the quoting into account,
replacing it after the paragraph wrapping.
