Do you mean "any line that starts with 'From'" or "lines that could be
taken as valid 'From_' lines"?  In the former case, I argue for fixing
the broken MUA.  A From_ line has a well defined format.  Escaping any
line that starts with "From" ist entirely unnecessary.

You don't need to quote my .signature.  Everyone has seen it by now.
Besides, it doesn't add anything to the current thread.
