Bug#544175: add_mail_brackets option wrong default and description

Package: mldonkey-server
Severity: minor
Tags: upstream

The add_mail_brackets option seems wrongly defined. It defaults to
false and the description says "Does your mail-server need <...>
around addresses", suggesting that it's a workaround. RFC 5321,
however, specifies that these brackets are required:

  4.1.2. Command Argument Syntax

  Reverse-path   = Path / "<>"
  Forward-path   = Path
  Path           = "<" [ A-d-l ":" ] Mailbox ">"

The default should thus be true and the description "set to false if
your mail server does not know how to handle angle-brackets around
addresses (RFC 5321)".

Ideally, the option should be removed and replaced with
"omit_mail_brackets", defaulting to false and with description "set
to true if your mail server does not implement RFC 5321 correctly
and cannot handle angle-brackets around addresses."
