(Bizarrely, this is something I know how to do *easier* in vi: move to
start of current region, use C-g to find the current line number, move
to end of region, then do :97,.s/^/>/ where 97 was that earlier line
number to do the same replace-regexp.)

C-h f indent-region talks about indenting non-blank lines with the fill
prefix, which is set via set-fill-prefix, which IIRC is usually bound to
C-x f.  So another approach would be to move after the citation mark on
an earlier line, run M-x set-fill-prefix, then select the section to
quote and run M-x indent-region.

C-h f message- TAB gives me a list of message-related functions (which
is to say, Gnus' message-composition mode) but nothing there jumped out
at me.
