New submission from Alberto Trevino <alberto at byu.edu>:

This patch updates smtpd.py to be more RFC 5321 compliant.  It contains:

 - EHLO support
 - Implement DATA size limit (32 MiB by default)
 - 8-bit mime extension plumbing (doesn't do anything, but accepts and
   records command)
 - Basic VRFY support
 - Basic HELP support
 - A few improvements to messages (more in line with RFC 5321 examples)
 - Misc. documentation updates

The patch is specific to Python 3.1.  I have not tried to backport the changes to 2.x.  If possible, I would like the patch to be considered for inclusion to 3.2.
