Good catch, Glenn!  A few years ago, I fixed my reply filter to
add "References:" and fix "In-reply-to:".  Here's mine; it also
does all sorts of stuff to "To:" and "cc:" that we probably
*don't* want.

One other change I like is that, if there's no To:/cc:/Fcc: text
after the escapes are evaluated, this file outputs blank header
components for "prompter" to fill in.  (I think the original files
just omit those components.)

Earl, does yours work differently?  Can we merge ours somehow?
