I think this is the code you're looking for.

<xsl:template match="REPLY-TO-POST">
  <xsl:variable name="query">
    <xsl:value-of select="CITED-QUESTION"/>
  <xsl:when test="not(preceding::QUESTION[contains(., $query)])">
    <xsl:message>Sorry, come again?</xsl:message>

We'll be able to use this as soon as Mulberry gets done testing the new
XML-aware, autotagging MetaMail engine, with the prescience support module
installed (coming real soon now).
