I like the new action_quarantine_entire_message() action, but would
still like to have any added headers appear as part of the quarantined
message headers. This is really useful for adding SpamAssassin hits
and hit names. Otherwise, when a message is quaratined because it looks
like spam, you have to run that message thru SpamAssassin manually
to get the hit count.

One way to achieve this is per the patch below; there may other, better
ways, as well.
