Reply to patch functionality

I forgot to state that there are two ways to build this functionality:
1. Construct the reply link during mail parsing
2. Construct the reply link during web page display.

To get the functionality right, the following information is needed:
- Message-ID
- _Unmangled_ subject
- Mailing list mail address

AFAICS the mail header is available during mail parsing and during web
display, but it seems it is a bit more difficult to extract the info
from the header after it has been stored in the database (at least from
looking at the structure).

What's the right way to do this?
