Igor, I took a look at your patch. I was confused by one aspect: why split
the from_addr into words an encode each one individually, rather than
encoding the whole header value like we do for the Subject: header? I dug
around in the related RFCs, and if I'm reading the RFCs correctly, doing
per-word encoding is actually the right thing to do. Should we, then, do
the same for the Subject: header?
