Yes, I have also seen it and been using it myself casually in 
discussions. I very much like it, so +1 from me :).

Also, it makes the 278 new messages a little less daunting :). Plus, and 
I think this is a really big advantage, it immediately conveys the 
author’s opinion of the replied-to message, so you don’t have to scan 
the text anymore for it.
