I'm sure message-mode can be tweaked either gracefully or savagely in
order to provide this.  I'd be happy to look into it although I
unfortunately don't have a lot of time to code right now. 

What are your thoughts generally about integration with things like
message mode vs. implementing more into the C program?  If you think the
message-mode enhancements will have a life I'll spend some time on this
and getting the semi-broken version of the reply functions I posted
working more correctly as well.
