Are you sure?  pipermail's command line tool obviously has to respect
From_ separators, since it processes whole mailboxes in one gulp.  The
email module does optionally do from-stuffing when it writes out a
message, but it might be tricky to get this right on input, since the
archiver function can operate either pipelined on a single message or
batch processing a whole mbox file.
