You're absolutely right. I'm not sure why I wrote that... Anyway, my
intent was that _if_ l.d.o is un-encoding messages, it should re-encode
them with q-p. However, I think you're right. l.d.o doesn't change
messages except to add a few headers. In that case, ">From" is an
MUA/MTA artifact.

Does mutt q-p "From " lines? Probably does under PGP/MIME signatures...
