Very cool. Thanks for working on this. I don't have time to review the
whole parser right now (and I agree that it would be nice to see it hook
into the existing stuff in mailinfo.c), but the idea sounds delightful.

If it's possible to use the battle-tested parts of mailinfo.c without
much effort, I'd be in favor of waiting on that. But in case that it's
not, I agree with you that we shouldn't let perfect be the enemy of the
good[^1], either.

Thanks,
Taylor

  overruns in it ;-)
