Mutt *is* capable of wrapping overlong lines. But when replying to a=20
message a quoting character (> ) is only inserted at the beginning of
each line, so if becomes difficult to assign some (multiple) quoted
lines of text to a sender because some lines will not begin with a=20
quoting character.

Example (quoting myself):

> This text is more than one line, so the second line will be wrapped when
quoting but not contain a quoting character at the beginning.
