*laugh*  Not lots, but some.  Tell you what.  When I release the code, you
look at it.  If something is nonobvious, ask about it here, and I'll
explain it.  If my explanations are any good, I'll insert them into the
code.  It's documentation-by-interrogation. :-)    (03)

Gotcha.  Sure, could be done.  But it would be low on my priority list.
In my experience using purple numbers with e-mail, I have not once
found the need to address a quoted excerpt.  Because I have not needed the
purple numbers associated with quoted text, implementing this feature
wouldn't be of any benefit to me.  However, I'm certainly open to contrary
experiences suggesting otherwise.    (05)
