Re: Bug#380173: ITP: deb822 -- Read and manipulate RFC822-like files (e.g. .dsc and .changes)

Is it really worth doing this?
Python readily has rfc822 parsing and the added value seems marginal to
the point where I'd not be looking for a module when I had a task to do
that could use it.
Additionally, shipping python modules without documentation seems a bad
idea if you want it to be useful.
