Based on the patch by janisteunissen. jannisteunissen@7f8b598
Add new configuration variable `mu4e-compose-auto-include-date'.
So that one can see when a draft was composed when browsing the draft maildir (instead of getting "None" in the Date column). Then one can sort the drafts by date.
this seems to cause problems in some cases, where message-mode apparently requires the text to be writable.
What was going wrong? Using the function `mu4e-view-message-text', mu4e~draft-cite-original created a temporary buffer. Based on this buffer the function message-cite-original-without-signature, borrowed from Gnus, had to extract the date for the citation line. The problem was, that this function depends on a standardized date in ISO format whilst mu4e-view-message-text formatted the date according to the setting of mu4e-view-date-format. This patch hopefully solves this problem by setting mu4e-view-date-format in function mu4e~draft-cite-original.

The first sentence should summarize the variable's or function's purpose and it should fit on the first line. Change existing doc-string by: * Move first sentence onto first line even if that makes it _a bit_ long. * Move additional notes out of first sentence and add them later, possibly as complete sentences. * If I am uncertain whether doing the above would alter the meaning, _don't_ do it. * If fitting the initial sentence on the first line would require a complete rewrite of the doc-string _don't_ do so unless it is very easy to do. * Remove indentation from second and later lines if it is there to align them with the first in the source code, instead of in `describe-*' output. * Make "pullet point" lists a bit more consistent. Obviously this does not fix all problems but it's a start.
