Take pity on the multitude of emailers Out There: restrict the
line length in your email to less than 72 chars and use hard
carriage returns. If either of these guidelines is violated
auto line wrapping can make a hash of any deathless prose,
especially when it is quoted. I note in passing that the footer
added by the si-list majordomo itself violates these guidelines
:_>
