Indeed, though it does slightly spoil the cleanness of the unpacking
assignment to include a dummy lvalue for the middle element.
[Thanks for the on-topic reply! I'm surprised more people haven't felt
the need to write unpacking splits like this to be honest, but I guess
engaging in SMTP syntax law is much more fun. Yes guys, I'm well aware
of the capabilities of the RFC2822 addr-spec format, thanks, and no,
it's not relevant to the particular program that example came from.
Cheers for the concern though.]
