This is why I said "inserted using message.el's message-cite-*
mechanisms". Do these people insert their quotes using message-yank-*

If so, the regexp could be constructed to respect those, and not
message-cite-prefix-regexp, right?

Or that. It might not be worth the effort.

On a related subject, I was thinking of (require 'smiley) in message.el
to avoid a `message-smiley' variable (a list o strings), and just use
the cars of `smiley-regexp-alist'. Can that be problematic?  (especially
because I've learned recently that changes to Emacs's Gnus are
automatically cherry-picked to the Gnus upstream where they might break
