Re: the right bug severity in case of mbox formats

* Simon McVittie <smcv@debian.org>, 2012-11-28, 19:16:
If you don't restrict yourself to avoiding MIME, any piece of text (or indeed any bytestring) becomes losslessly representable. In particular, MUAs supporting quoted-printable and/or Base64 can avoid sending messages matching /^From / by using MIME and quoted-printable-encoding them. Adam's MUA, which appears to be mutt, does so by using QP, without special effort from him.

mutt indeed has an option to that (encode_from), but it's disabled by default.
