I agree that it's weird to see text with a line through it, and I've
never seen anybody use the dash notation with that intent.  However,
some people seem to use it for emphasis, so it might be more
reasonable to map it to italics (I think people don't really like the
/slash/ notation for italics, it's too intrusive in the plain text

BTW, I wonder if anybody actually reads the <address@hidden> list...
there seems a tendency for messages there to go entirely unanswered
but be quickly taken up if you post to address@hidden or so.
