Actually, I just tested, I find, even as I'm writing this message, that

   (modify-syntax-entry ?> "<   " message-mode-syntax-table)
   (modify-syntax-entry ?\n ">   " message-mode-syntax-table)
   (modify-syntax-entry ?\" "\"    " message-mode-syntax-table)
   (add-hook 'message-mode-hook
             (lambda () (setq-local parse-sexp-ignore-comments t)))

Works reasonably well for handling cited text. The only issue I'm seeing
is that single ?> in my code snippet that is erroneously interpreted as
a comment starter. Perhaps there's a way to fix that (two-char-long
comment sequences?), but I find it rare enough.
