How so? It merely requires the ability to navigate up and down by lines,
and to select and delete text. I've used some very crummy MUAs, but the
ability to trim quoted text has never been absent or difficult. Are
there MUAs so crummy that this is a PITA, yet still used by any
significant portion of email users?
