So, there are three choices:
1) just compress whitespace at fold points

the unfold logic is too complex for most authors of e-mail software, it
seems, and a "compress whitespace" rule might make life easier for them.
however, they will probably still screw up

Subject: This RFC 2047 thingy is =?UTF-8?Q?p?=

so I don't think it matters much in practice.  so my conclusion is:
don't confuse matters even more by adding Sieve specific unfolding

Note that we had previously agreed that leading and trailing
whitespace on the field value in total should be completely ignored;
that would not be affected by the compression described above.

I don't see why we need to strip trailing whitespace, but I don't feel
strongly about it.
