Adds <mark-message> binding to create "hotkeys" for messages.

<mark-message>foo<enter> will create a new macro "'foo" which will
return to the current message by searching for that message's
message id.  The initial character of the macro is defined by
$mark_macro_prefix, and defaults to "'" for verisimilitude vs. vi.

Pushed by Kevin McCarthy with a minor fix.

<title>Marking Messages</title>
There are times that it's useful to ask Mutt to "remember" which message
you're currently looking at, while you move elsewhere in your mailbox.
You can do this with the <quote>mark-message</quote> operator, which
is bound to the <quote>~</quote> key by default. Press this key to
enter an identifier for the marked message. When you want to return to
this message, press <quote>'</quote> and the name that you previously
(Message marking is really just a shortcut for defining a macro
that returns you to the current message by searching for its
Message-ID. You can choose a different prefix by setting the <link
linkend="mark-macro-prefix">$mark_macro_prefix</link> variable.)
