It would be good to know.  What do people think?  A quick scan through the
RFC2822 - Internet Message Format reveals the following, but I am not sure if
that is enough to convince anyone.

   Semantically, the angle bracket characters are not part of the
   msg-id; the msg-id is what is contained between the two angle bracket

Thanks for the patch.  It didn't work for what I needed (e.g. fetch the parent
article) until I applied analogous changes to the other occurrence of search by
message-id in nnimap.el: nnimap-request-article-part.
