Help on mail-abbrev-insert-alias and quotation marks

I'm using Mew mail on Emacs, with BBDB to manage addresses. The Mew
support for BBDB is not complete, for example there is no way the
mail-alias can be used in address completion.

To circumvent this limitation, it is possible to call directly
'mail-abbrev-insert-alias' on the "To: " header line and have the
mailabbrev fill the addresses that it automagically gets from BBDB
(i.e. I have no idea how it gets them).

The only problem is that if the name of an adressee contains non-ascii
characters, the name is wrapped in quotation marks, which then means
that the message can not be sent, as Mew complains about these
quotation marks – it is perfectly able to handle those non-ascii
characters. I.e., what comes out is:

To: "Jani Jämsä" <jjamsa@email.addr>, Lari Laine <llaine@email.addr>

when what should come out is

To: Jani Jämsä <jjamsa@email.addr>, Lari Laine <llainen@email.addr>

Now, my question is, is there any way the 'mail-abbrev-insert-alias'
can be made to return the list of addresses matching the alias without
any of the names wrapped in quotation marks?
