It happens; thanks for checking anyway (and this was exactly the reason 
I wanted people to verify this change :-).

For now, I undid the change with 

It appears that we *do* have consensus for disallowing controls in 
quoted-pairs, thus for:

   quoted-pair    = "\" ( WSP / VCHAR / obs-text )

However, if that's all that we do we won't have addresses issue #173

- add a new issue for disallowing CTLs in quoted-pair

- address #173 by tuning the definition of chunk-ext-val
