# The point I want to make is:
# - Is it an RFC convention or not to separate signatures with "--\n" (
# or "---\n", etc).

It wouldn't be hard to have a check for both. It is not an RFC convention but a Usenet one that has found itself creaping into email uses through the last 17 years.

# - If it is not, would you like to have a setup configuration to avoid
# having this automatic signature rule.

Personally I don't care but I will want the signatures here as the author designed them. If othere want it the other way then maybe it should be an option.
