Yes, I miss this too.  I wish the textareas had the entire message
in it, so that they have both wonderful attributes of 1) not taking
up page after page of browser area, but 2) having the whole
daggone message (or at least the first N kB, where N is configurable).

You can do that with a "discard/forward to" or "hold/forward to".
The "forward to" is nifty.

I don't want the old format; I want that very-slight tweak to the
new format (configurable textarea size), with the perhaps other
tweak of "80-column textarea width".

If you agree, I'm about to code that anyway.
