have this behaviour an option.

But on latest snapshots you can forward inline: Actions > Forward As...

It's still not going to change.  If you want to reply to a message,
reply to it, that isn't forwarding.

This has been debated at length, months ago.  Forwarding as an
attachemnt is the correct way, and why it is the default behaviour, and
will not change.

What does "is the correct way" mean?  Is there an RFC that says you can't forward a message inline?

Go read the archives, about a year ago probably.

Then how about making the forwarded subject line say something like "FW:" or
"FWD:", instead of the non-standard and disconcerting way it is now?
