Thanks for your comments.

What you say is completely correct according to the RFC.  But look at
the following headers from a message in my inbox:

   To: "'C Mummert'" <mummert(_at_)math(_dot_)psu(_dot_)edu>
   X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook, Build 10.0.4510

How about treating "'stuff'" as quoted instead of treating " and '
