This is actually fairly standard across most mailers and newsreaders as
far as I know.
This isn't just standard, it's in some of the more obscure RFC's regarding 
handling of Signature files.
The --\n sequence on a line by itself is the designator between the body 
of a message, and the signature for the message.  Clients that know this 
use it to parse the sig out of a reply-quoted message.  

I wasn't ever talking about leaving out the "-- " (although I think if I
really wanted that, the mailer should let me do it), I only meant I want
it inserted somewhere else but before the content of the signature file.
So I'd just like to insert it myself. 

I left my signature below the way Evolution currently mangles it. As you
can see, there's a second -- before my name. That is because my name is
actually part of the signature file (being lazy, very simply). I want my
name to appear before the --, but I still want only one --. Clear?
