The default News ModeFile allows you to break into quoted paragraphs
(at any point) so you can respond to a particular point using cs-Return.

If you do this by hand then you need to fix the bit that's been moved to
a new line as it will have lost its quoting. cs-Return does this for you
automatically by copying the quoting from the original line start to the
start of the bit moved down. Only snag is that if the line starts with a
bullet then the bullet is copied as well. The Unbullet expression is
used to fix this by replacing the bullet with a space.

Hope that's clear enough, it's easier to use than describe.
