Created attachment 368204 [details] [diff] [review]
Naive patch

The plaintext editor offers an option, based on the pref mail.compose.citationType, to use what was apparently AOL's style of quoting in mail some time before 1999, wrapping a quote in ">> " and " <<".

While we do actually recognize that as a quote in composition, at least to the extent of showing it in blue text, even we don't know what to make of it when we receive it, treating the first line as being two quote-levels deep and the rest as unquoted.

The world will be a better place once it's wiped from the face of the earth (and editor will have a little less ugly twisted code, and slightly fewer unnecessary includes, to boot).

I assume you've checked that Thunderbird and Seamonkey don't have UI for this?
