Oh, come on. You can feed
Foo Bar <fbar at some.place>
directly to sendmail -t. And most other places will use the full
field name. Extracting the e-mail address for a mailto: link isn't
exactly magic either. Nobody suggests requiring a full RFC822
parser, you don't need to handle all sorts of quoting and parentheses.
About the only "problem" I foresee is whether to force our Japanese
etc developers into Firstname Lastname order.
