you could define your muttrc editor variable to be a program that locates
and removes signatures before invoking vim on the result. you just have
to write the program.

i used to have procmail filter emails through a program that deleted
signatures and legal notices upon arrival. i had to add new signatures
to be recognised whenever new ones turned up.

so it can be automated but it requires some effort.
