Fixing some of the brokenness of the To/Cc/Bcc headers in the composer
would be wonderful.

Try this in the current composer:
 1. Paste or enter this address into the To: header, exactly as follows:
    Woodhouse, David <David Woodhouse intel com>
 2. Click somewhere *outside* the To: header entry box.

 3. "Realise" that the name is stupidly backwards and contains a stupid
    comma that shouldn't be in an RFC5322 display-name. (Yay Exchange)

 4. Go back to the To: header entry, and put quotes around the
    display-name so it looks like
    "Woodhouse, David" <David Woodhouse intel com>

 5. Click somewhere outside the entry, again.

 6. Watch the address magically transform itself to nonsense:
    "Woodhouse, David" <David woodhouse intel com>, David <David woodhouse intel com>

In the past when our message *display* also gratuitously screwed with
display-names to *remove* the quotes which were necessary to make them
correct, this used to happen quite a lot when addresses were cut and

We should also be able to send a mail with the following headers:
  To: Some people I want to invite to my party : ; 
  Bcc: foo bar com

Currently I get an SMTP error when I try that, because it treats the
group in the To: header as a single address, and submits it in 
RCPT TO:<Some people... party : ;>
