You can then give it a tag like "Follow up" or "Reply" or "Review", and
optionally a due date. Then when you look at the message (though not
right away if it's already being displayed), you'll see the flag info at
the top of the message, reminding you of whatever it's reminding you of.

Great,.. I was just about to bugzilla this kind of feature.. now 2

can't because the flag is completely arbitrary. They aren't hard-coded.
they are just some default values.

 It should be added as a task too so that I'm reminded that I have
