Your suggestions seem reasonable, but I don't think it's so bad without

   Two suggestions for ZMAIL:

   1.  Sometimes I will start a REPLY to only the sender of a message and then
   later change my mind and want to include the other original recipients (as CC or
   whatever).  I wish there were a menu item in the menu that gets presented
   while composing a reply that would insert them.  Otherwise I have to abort
   out and start over or abort out, remember who the other recipients were,
   continue, and hand enter them.

You don't need to hand enter them.  You can just edit the original message
and use Meta-W to copy the addresses to the kill ring, and then yank them
into the reply.  You don't even have to abort out of the reply; "c-X 2"
while writing a reply goes into two-window mode (actually, three-window),
with the original message in the upper window.

   2.  I wish that there was another menu item that would insert a bug header
   on the current message.  Sometimes I start a message to customer-reports
   and then realize I don't have a bug header.  Then I have to abort and start
   all over.

It's not all that hard to start over.  Before you abort, put the current
text into the kill ring, and just yank it into the bug report.
