Summary: email.Utils not mentioned

Initial Comment:
I read the following and had to track down why
'email.make_msgid()' was failing.  Turns out I need to
import email.Utils of course, but the name of the
module to import is not even mentioned in the docs.  It
states they come 'with the email package' only.

...
12.2.9 Miscellaneous utilities

There are several useful utilities provided with the
email package. 

quote(str)
    Return a new string with backslashes in str
replaced by two backslashes, and double quotes replaced
by backslash-double quote.
