npx.h currently defines __INITIAL_NPXCW__ as 0x127f which makes the x87
emulate double (53-bit) precision rather than its native 64-bit long
double.  Doesn't this change also need a corresponding change to npx.h
to make the x87 run with 64-bit precision?

an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
