Actually, it absolutely does. So.. I am still confused. Here's a sample
bug that I filed and for emailed about:

Public bug reported:

I was pretty surprised to click on reply when looking at Celso's MP diff


and get back a completely garbled quoted diff. I think there's something
bad in the handling of comment text which is leading to this.

I am going to piggyback here and ask why it is that when clicking on
"review" I don't get the diff quoted. I think having separate "review"
and "comment" forms may be a disservice to us; we could just simplify
this and have a comment form which allowed you to add a review as part
of the review if you had the relevant privs.

So what's the problem?
