No, not for compat32 policy.  Seriously, I do not want to change the semantics
or syntax for existing code.  This API predates even the renaming and
stdlibbing of the email package from the older mimelib.

By all means, let's develop API alternatives for new code, or stricter RFC
compliance with defect registration for newer policies.  But please leave
things alone for compat32 and existing code.
