Summary: Subject wrap with tab character

Initial Comment:
Mailman: 2.1.2

The subject line is wrapped by a tab character, if the line 
contains more than 78 characters. In this case a space is 
replaced by an tab character.

This behaviour gives trouble with some e-mail client and 
is also not handled by MHonArc correctly. 

In an e-mail client a long space is shown or a special 
character. MHonArc simply removes the tab character 
therefore two words are combined, e.g. the tab is 
inserted between the two word "and" and "delivery"; in 
the archive the subject contains the new word 
"anddelivery"

This behavior seems to still occur in 2.1.6

I notice this also with Mailman 2.1.1.  I don't see code in mailman doing it, 
so it appears to be in email.Header or unicode.
