I agree. The RFC says SHOULD, so Message shouldn't have an easy way to
generate From headers that deviate from the `angles' style.
So I propose to remove the code that reacts to `message-from-style'
(i.e., always generate `angles' From headers), and mark
`message-from-style' as obsolete and note in the doc string that it's no
(domestic pets only, the antidote for overdose, milk.)
