To make it slightly easier for Martin, here's what Nick is referring to:

    <http://email.about.com/cs/netiquettetips/a/et030601.htm>
    <http://www.math.fu-berlin.de/~guckes/afw/sig_dashes.php3>
    <http://www.templetons.com/usenet-format/sig-len.html>

In addition, RFC 1046 specifies this format, but its focus is Usenet.
I can't find anything canonical to specify this convention for email.
