looks like rfc 2554 might be what you want. it's dated
march 1999, and not part of smtp or esmtp - this might be
why it's not in smtplib (yet). smtp is rfc821 and esmtp is rfc1869.

rfc822 actually just describes the format of email messages,
and doesn't care about how they get transported around the internet.

rfc2554 looks pretty straightforward. happy hacking & don't
forget to send patches when you're finished ;)
ssl support might be useful also...
