I looked through the code that generates messages in sb_filter.py.  In
theory, down in mboxutils.get_message() we could attach the raw message text
to the generated Message object if the input was a string:

    msg._raw = obj

That doesn't help if the object being parsed is already a Message object.
It also seems like a very bad hack just to make the raw text available in
case message flattening fails at tail end.
