You spoke, we listened

Some of you had some useability suggestions for the Quick Message feature, and David listened. 

You will now be able to selectively launch the quick reply panel from the notification bar (if you prefer not to have the pop up notification panel). 

This code is still in progress, but we thought some of you would appreciate knowing the enhancements were taking place. 
Adding 'Quick reply' to the notification shade.  This leverages the new QuickMessage functionality to allow for fast replies from the notification itself.  It will only show up if (1) The Quick message pop-up is disabled (no need showing two pop-ups), (2) It is an SMS message and (3) it is a single message or a thread from the same sender.
