I'm not sure I want to take patchwork in this direction; I don't want to 
implement a full mail composer in the web interface. Also, replying via 
patchwork means that you don't get your mail sent in your 'Sent Items' 

I'd prefer to facilitate interaction with existing mailers. Perhaps a script 
where we can download the mbox, then hook into your mailer to begin composing 
a reply? This won't work with the web-based mail clients though...

It's in the Project object, listemail property.
