My usual workaround is to use the forward function, but then I don't
send the forwarded email, but rather copy the part I want to include,
and paste it into the email I want to attach it to.

So I:

 a) Read the article I want to attach
 b) Start to forward it (C-c C-f)
 c) Copy from the beginning [#mml type=message/rfc822
    disposition=inline]-tag to the end [#/mml]-tag.
 d) Delete the forward article buffer (C-x k)
 e) Start a new email (m)
 f) Paste the copied article.

There are probably easier ways, but I do it seldom enough that I haven't
