It took me under a minute to get the above text out of the digest and into
this message. That seems convenient enough and fast enough for me. Of
course, I'm using Eudora in a cut-and-paste environment. Those of you stuck
in unix environments need to be a little more resourceful, but I suspect you
could do it even faster if you were clever with emacs or shell scripts.

Maybe it's not so bad if replying to a message takes a little time and
effort. Some of the shoot-from-the-hip replies I've seen would improve with
a little thought. ...RM
