How do these mail readers wrap quotes like the above?

Don't know about those, but gnus does a good job. BTW, quotes should
use the string "> " at column 0, nothing else.

Feel free to do that. After about 3-4 levels of quote replacing ">>>>" with a name makes it more readable. I'm not suggesting making that a standard, but I certainly won't complain about someone making my life easier, either.
