   Yes, but this causes subtle bugs when you forget a comma: what  
should be the second parameter ends up in the first one. You run the  
program with no syntax errors and later you'll find that e-mails are  
being sent to 'me at domain.comHello!' or something like that.

As they say: just my 2 cents.
