Barry, I've added you as nosy in case you disagree with this fix.  The essential point is that before, parseaddr would turn 'merwok wok@example.com' into 'merwokwok@example.com', and now it preserves the whitespace.  My theory is that this loses data, that the obsolete syntax allows it, and that dropping the whitespace denies the application program the chance to apply its own heuristics.  However applications might currently be depending on the parsed local part being a single token, so I don't plan to backport this.
