   However, that "attribution" in the header is in a field that isn't
   commonly displayed by most GNU mail clients AFAICT.

All mail clients show the To headers, so proper attribution is already

   Please include proper attribution in the message, as suggested in
   RFC 1855.

I really dislike it when people quote RFC's which first of all are
guidelines, secondly, they themself do not folllow, thirdly, the
person who they are lecturing is already following the part that they
are requesting to be followed.

>From RFC 1855:

  * Limit line length to fewer than 65 characters and end a line with
    a carriage return.
  * Mail should have a subject heading which reflects the content of
    the message.

So please, lets stop this useless side-thread and get back to the
topic at hand; whatever it was...
