No one is asking (at least not on this thread) to be able to send
in-line PGP - all that's being requested is that I be able to respond to
messages sent by mailers that do, without having to do some arbitrary
cut-and-paste dance to quote in the reply.

To summarise: Evolution is not broken, the other mailers are.

Granted - agreed - no argument - and I (for one) don't want it to be
broken in it's behavior, just to "play nicely" with other (broken)
