Thanks for the tip.  I'm now using it ;-).  However it still
doesn't produce the fancy citation date I was looking for ("On
DATE at TIME, SOMEONE wrote) as in the example below (taken from
two recent posts to this list):

;; ORIGINAL POST
Date: Tue, 11 Nov 2003 18:52:02 +0900

Is the separated date and time a mew feature? I noticed that
mu-cite's "date" function simply extracts the value of the
original email's "Date:" field:

	(cons 'date
	      (function
	       (lambda ()
		 (mu-cite-get-field-value "Date"))))

So I must assume that some text processing must be involved in
transforming "Date: Tue, 11 Nov 2003 18:52:02 +0900" to "On
November 11, 2003 at 6:52PM +0900".
