I completely agree with your point, but if you have a good mutt
colour setup, it is fairly easy to scan through large mails and
distinguish new text vs quoted text at a glance. I even have
some magic settings to highlight patches in email


In my .muttrc:

    # General colour settings
    color attachment brightmagenta black
    #color body white black
    color bold green black
    color header brightyellow black ^(From|Subject):
    color hdrdefault yellow black
    #color index white black
    #color indicator brightyellow red
    color indicator brightyellow red
    color markers brightcyan black
    color message brightcyan black
    color normal white black
    color quoted brightblue black
    color search green black
    color signature red black
    color status yellow blue
    color tilde magenta black
    color tree magenta black
    color underline green black

    # Patch file highlighting
    color body green black "^diff \-.*"
    color body green black "^index [a-f0-9].*"
    color body green black "^\-\-\- .*"
    color body green black "^[\+]{3} .*"
    color body cyan black "^[\+][^\+]+.*"
    color body red  black "^\-[^\-]+.*"
    color body brightblue black "^@@ .*"
