   One last point (I promise :^)  Are you going to use sieve-address in
   formal grammar for redirect/vacation?  I think just saying that
   addresses "are also a subset
   of strings" leaves room for someone to do:

   redirect text:
   (test user)

   Do we really want to allow this?  This should still parse OK, but
   pretty ugly.  Maybe stating that addresses are a subset of
   quoted-strings would be better?  Or better yet, define: 

I don't think we should care about ugliness.  It's ugly but it's a legal
address with a single interpretation, so it's fine.

We want the least sane rules, not the prettiest addresses.


BTW, I verified that cmu-sieve can handle this.  I was confident that the 
would be parsed OK, but was pleasently surprised that sendmail was able to 
accept an address with CRLF in it.
