It would be an excellent enhancement if one were able to reply to a text message in-place, without quitting the current app.

The scenario I'm imaging:

1. You're using any iPhone app other than Text.
2. A new text message comes in, and you're notified with the blue modal dialog.
3. Hitting Reply would create a text field right in the blue modal dialog, in which you can type out a reply.
4. Once sent, you're back in the app you were using, without having quit or lost your context.
