display filter for RFC822 messages

This program is a filter which shall improve the readability of messages (email and posts) by *hiding* some annoying parts, e.g. mailing list footers, signatures and TOFU as well as squeezing sequences of blank lines or punctuation.

TOFU is an acronym that stands for "Text oben, Fullquote unten" (German language) which means the style of sadly so many people that just leave all the quotes in a reply and add some own lines above. This acronym is what gave the script its name - TOFU Protection.

It currently offers hints how to include it within mutt, slrn or inn2. It should be possible to do similars with other programs that allow to have a message run through a filter before it's displayed. If you use such a program we'd be interested if you could send in your setup.
