I've released version 1.0 of the MetaFilthy extension.

This extension allows the easy quoting of other metafilter.com posts or comments in comments to metafilter.com

As such, it is of course only of interest to metafilter users.

The extension may be found at http://www.diffenbach.org/metafilthy.html

(If anyone can suggest other places to list this extension, please let me know.)

Many thanks to all here who answered my questions, especially asqueella and rue.
