I know I'm coming into this a bit late, but you might consider.....
4: Add option to hide/mute quoted text.
5: Add option to scroll past quoted text.
This has the advantage of being "eye-candy" (of a sorts) AND satisfying
those that don't wish to view quoted text. Given the limited screen
real estate for a hand held device, both options seem quite desirable.
(BTW -- if you add an option to hide the quoted text, then when quoting,
unless there is a selection, the entire article, including the hiden
text, should be quoted).
