would you include an extra line above what you're quoting? or append '> '
to each line that's being quoted? that would keep everything behaving
nonetheless, i *will* count that as the first argument towards changing
the behavior of ez-pine-gpg... which AFAIK would then be the only gpg
filter for pine that behaves that way that.

seriously though, the reason that i don't use that convention is because i
send signed mail to lists and people who don't use pgp/gpg... and i don't
want my email to be formatted differently depending on whether or not it
is signed... so, to the extent that i can, i avoid using lines that start
with a dash.
