RFC 2616 allows `From: Julian Reschke <julian.reschke@gmx.de>` and I am
quite sure syntax like that is used in the wild; it is also good to keep
the syntax close to the mail and netnews `From` headers. The change in
changeset 2443 seems to disallow this form. It is unclear to me that you
intended to make this use non-compliant.
