Re: Who says 1154 is not recursive?
My RFC-1154 implementation does not specifically support recursively nested
messages, but there is no particular reason why it can't. I would just have
to make opening a message segment put the message into a new read window
instead of dumping it into a text file.
There are somewhat more complex implications for my support for structured
mail in IMAP2 (RFC-1176, not to be confused with "IMAP3" of RFC-1203), but I
plan on addressing those (as well as the 8-bit issue) after this WG comes to a
conclusion about what to do.
I don't particularly care for RFC-1154's line counts, but in weak defense of
it I should note that it seems to be somewhat less obnoxious to a human reader
than some of the explicitly machine-readable alternatives proposed.
I would like to warn especially against the 2^n nesting mechanisms proposed.
That gets out of hand quickly. At most, it should be *n.
