The way I've seen it implemented is this way:

You que the messages, whichever messages you want to save in a circlular ;) que
(oh say 20 messages long) then you make new commands like "showshout",
etc. It displays these messages.  The easiest is of course shout and tell since
they are much easier to capture and you could use a global data structure. Tells
would be a bit more complicated since you would have to do that for all players.
Alternatively, (to the new command option) you could make a second arguement
for shout,tell etc...I've seen this done also...
