It doesn't actually have any serious problems w/respect to WSGI usage, just 
stuff we don't need.

However, despite our change to a 2.2.2 version target, Jython has since 
then emerged as a use case, so I believe we're moving back to at least a 
2.1 version target.  IIRC, 'email.Message' isn't available in 2.1.

Anyway, the alternative is "list of (name,value) tuples", not anything from 
the rfc822 module.
