I don't think it should be so much work, at least for the fields
relevant here.  I guess I'll have to do it if it means the difference
between mail getting delivered or not, but I've got other things to

The thing is that there are already three or four different parsing
packages, including rfc822, ietf-drums (which should presumably be
rfc2822), mail-extr, mail-utils, and presumably things like supercite,
but none of them actually have an interface for tokenizing addresses
and it's not clear how correct they all are.  Someone should sort this
