[New-bugs-announce] [issue1277] mailbox.Maildir: factory not used

New submission from Bernd Wurst:

The "factory"-argument to the constructorof mailbox.Maildir is not 
used as it should be.

First, it's default is set to rfc822.Message instead of MaildirMessage 
and then, inside the module's code, MaildirMessage is hard-coded as a 
message constructor.

If I need a derived class with custom attributes, I cannot use it.
