I agree. What I had in mind would apply only to the emails
generated as diffs. After I thought about this a little
more, I realize that you may be right to imply that doing
this folding in a naive manner on text with a complex
format might well mangle some things badly. On the other
hand, the un-rendered wiki text itself is quite simple in
format (by design) so in most cases folding this (or diffs
of this) should not make things too unreable - especially
if I try to maintain the indent level if it is structured
text. Don't you think?

Ok thanks.
