Or perhaps Python's code likes the RFCs.
>From RFC 2183:
NOTE ON PARAMETER VALUE LENGHTS: A short (length <= 78 characters)
parameter value containing only non-`tspecials' characters SHOULD be
represented as a single `token'. A short parameter value containing
only ASCII characters, but including `tspecials' characters, SHOULD
be represented as `quoted-string'. Parameter values longer than 78
characters, or which contain non-ASCII characters, MUST be encoded as
specified in [RFC 2184].
an accented e is a not-ASCII character.
If the sending MUA didn't encode it, it's an MUA error (this is NOT a new
RFC)--dated in 1997.
If the MUA did encode the name, and Mailman decoded it and then choked on
the result later, that would be a clear Mailman error.
