I honestly don't remember now how to trigger the email mangling...

It is only in the cycle mailin->mailout that the format must be
preserved (e.g. it was sent by a mailer it must be formatted correctly
as an email so let's not mess with it).  Do with you will with
wiki-generated content.

The problem is that the code does not have a way (currently) of
differentiating the source of the content to be mailed out, and was
line-wrapping whatever it saw, whether email/diff/new page etc.
