Trac Email Notifcations Poorly formatted due to line wrap of quoted text

Trac email notifications are getting a hard break at 75 characters. https://trac.edgewall.org/browser/trunk/trac/ticket/notification.py#L101

This line break doesn't respect quoted text using a > quote marker, so when one received the email, the first 75 chars are on a indented color coded line, and the remainder of the text is not indented/marked up and looks like the reply.

This makes it very hard to follow what is actually a reply between quoted text and what is just broken formatting.

I'm not sure why in 2022 we need hard breaks like this at all. At least downstream users should be able to optionally disable this. Best however I think is just eliminating it and letting email clients wrap text as they see fit.
