Well, I tried, this doesn't work anymore. The mail reason I think is that for
each sentence such as :
to="$(formail -c -z -x "To:" < $mail)"
                                \-> here $mail is actually quoted I think.

How about droping alltogether this part of the patch, which is a README and not
actual aiaiai code.

Yeah, python rocks :)

OK. Can we drop the README part then ? I particulary dislike all shell stuff,
quoting drives me crazy and I never get it right.
