But format=flowed solves that, as long as the receiver also supports  
f=f. And in addition, it doesn't require a heuristic to  figure out  
which text is quoted at what level.

Of course f=f can't distinguish between a line which is long because  
it's a paragraph, or long because it was something quoted verbatim  
from a log file or similar, so the receiving client will apply soft  
wrap to both lines (but using the width of the receivers display).

That said, you're naturally free to wrap and reflow as you like :)
