New patch that takes a middle ground on the API: sendmail accepts string and bytes, and a new method send_message accepts a Message object with a more convenient signature.  I think send_message does belong in smtplib since it would be awkward and unintuitive to put the helper function in email, since one needs to create an SMTP server to call sendmail.  

I am satisfied with this version; the delta against the existing code and docs is smaller and the API feels clean.

The new patch also updates a couple of the email package examples that use sendmail to use send_message (one of the sendmail examples is left untouched).

If there are no objections I'll commit this this weekend sometime.
