Smart quoting helps this out quite a bit.  It's a shame that 
smartquoting isn't available in more email clients.

Smart quoting is when you can highlight a portion of text in the 
original message, hit reply, and only the highlighted part of the 
message gets quoted.  It's amazingly easy to use/get used to, and once 
you've been using it for a while, it's a nightmare to give up.

Kmail has this functionality, as well as Sylpheed.  As for others....
