This seems entirely reasonable, helpful, and in accord with the mapping
of ascii to us-ascii. I recommend accepting this patch or a slightly
fancier one that would also do "utf_8".
There are pobably other encoding names with the same issue of being
accepted by Python but not be understood by other email clients.
This issue also affects 2.6.1 and 2.7trunk. I haven't checked 3.x.
