Single line -- well, it was single line before KMail wrapped it. 

About the "risk". Computers are made for doing automatic tasks. When I see task
which is essentially deleting characters one by one, over and over, it is an
automated task. So it should be done by computer, not by human -- we (humans)
should spent time on higher level issues.

And about removing quotation marks -- I am not saying it is trivial, but it is
not rocket science either.

First draft could be -- take the non-alphanumeric common prefix of line of
begin of selection and each other. Remove the prefix in copied content. Un-wrap
lines.

In next iteration of the algorithm it could be enhanced to handle multiple
lines.
