Well, pan normally rewraps quotes too, in case they exceed the 80-char 
limit, if wrapping is turned on.  Note how it wrapped yours in the my 
earlier reply.

But I haven't actually tried it with > recently and there were some quite 
recent modifications to the way it handled quotes, so let me see (link 
from earlier in the thread)... wrapped, unfortunately.


FWIW, tho, I read/reply for all my lists using gmane's list2news gateway 
located at, and pan is a newsgroup client, not a mail 
client (it hands any direct mail replies off to the configured mail 
client), tho mail and news formats are basically the same except for a 
few standard headers so that matters little to nothing in context.

And I agree about the necessity, but pan development was only recently 
was resurrected from the dead (with a new set of devs) and they have 
their hands a bit full ATM.  However, it's on my list to ask them about 
when I get a chance, as there's a reasonable chance that the new 
developer eyes and brains will see the problem a bit differently.
