Why do I need a cgi script?  I thought a simple mailto: link would be
enough; upon clicking the link the user's mua would execute and from
there they can quote the message as they choose.  And MHonArc can do
threading based on the message subject so the original message id is not
needed.  At least I think this is the case...

I don't have any experience with these, unfortunately.  I'm a bit of a
newbie with all of this, actually.
