I was the one who offered myself to write the code for it.

I never did it. Mainly because it wasn't the quick patch I hoped it would be! ;-) I'm still in favour of adding this feature though.

A few functions used in and from printbody() (in print.c) need to be modified to return the number of visual characters they output so that for each block of characters we add to the output we can check for the word wrap column.

I would appriciate if someone hacked up a really messy example mail for me to work with, I think that could speed up my progress.
