I don't expect that'd happen in my case. I'm just interested in storing
the emails so that their contents are easily readable by a group of
people. Any replies would also be e-mails, rather than being intermixed
with the original email.

Still, I can see why in other cases it might be interesting to be able to
break up an email and write stuff in between.

Yes, although I have a vague idea that these recipes are based on some 
other tool (beautifier) which I don't think do e-mails...

Anyway, there's not been much interest for this so I guess the need isn't 
very pressing...
