Ability to quote a patch in a comment
- Someone posts a patch.
- Someone else :
- reads the issue.
- views the attached file using the diff viewer.
- clicks on a link "quote for comment".
- selects relevant lines and comments it.
This ability helps the patch reviewing process.
If possible, there should be one check box per patch hunk and a link or button (or two : top, bottom) to quote selected hunks.

There is a project called codestriker that provides these capabilities. It is a separate system, but it integrates with most SCM systems. I've used it and it's pretty decent.
Perhaps you can integrate something already written instead of re-inventing the wheel.
