I am sure it's not necessary, even on the Cygwin ML.  The threading isn't
broken as often as on various other mailing lists (especially on two
Yahoo ML I'm subscribed to).  It takes a couple of seconds to snip
away the unnecessary stuff from a reply and I'm absolutely sure that
it does good to the reply itself as well as the ML in general.

Heh.  I wrote the TOFU *acronym* is used a lot.  That's a necessary
evil since also in german NGs the number of Outlook users is going
towards infinity :-P
