   Thanks!  I've neglected t.news for too long.  It looks like there are
some good fixes in here.

    I notice there's a fix for parsing headers with continuations included
here too, which is cool.  I don't think I was even aware of such things when
I wrote the code originally - what seems apparent to me now, though, is that
Article either shouldn't exist at all, or that it should grow into (and move
somewhere appropriate for) a fully-fledged, asynchronous message parser that
can be used throughout Twisted wherever email-like messages need to be dealt

    In the test cases, you also used assert_() (but just once, I assume it
was an oversight), which shouldn't be access directly by tests cases, so I
changed this to a failUnless().  Also, I personally make it a point to turn
string module calls into string method calls when cleaning up code, and so
have done this as well.

    All in all, nice work.


A sad spectacle.  If they be inhabited, what a scope for misery 
and folly.  If they be not inhabited, what a waste of space.
