Sorry about not being clear enough. I totally agree with you that
integrating a full mail composer in patchwork is definitely a bad idea.
I wanted simple mailto: links like those generated by pipermail. For an
example, please take a look at
specifically at the first link on that page, named "svn at
coreboot.org". Most browsers are able to pass on that mailto: link to
your default mailer, and the default mailer gets the correct In-Reply-To
and Subject headers from the mailto: URL.

Unless I'm mistaken, the mailto: approach I envisioned would do what you
want, plus some browsers are even able to pass mailto: links to some
webmailers. Win-win, if you ask me.

Ah sorry, must have overlooked it. I'll try to code something up and get
back to you.
