My 4) actually meant that it should always return []. This is what it currently does, so it could be spelled out clearly in the code.

IIRC, getallmatchingheaders() cannot be emulated one-to-one using get_all(), because it handles continuation lines differently. That's why I thought removing or deprecating without fixing it would be the best.

rfc822.Message.getallmatchingheaders() is documented in Python 2, so removing it could make it harder to port code from Python 2 to Python 3. On the other hand, it's broken, so having it removed could actually make things better by not introducing hard-to-find bugs.

All in all, I'm not sure what's the best thing to do.
