Message id's generally look like an email adress, for example, your
message id is [🔎] m365a2pdht.fsf@wotan.attique.in . Also, you don't want to
fuck up patches and/or cvs/subversion/arch commit messages, regardless
whether or not they contain email adresses.

How would a script _not_ obfuscate that, but do obfuscate real email
adresses? Answer: it can't.
