The quoting is broken in this line (sq within sq does not work).

Am I correct that you intend to treat continuation lines with this
non-trivial perl script? All this processing gets tedious and
unreadable. Let me suggest this pattern instead:

# translate to Thunderbird language

LF=     # terminates the _previous_ line
while read -r line
        case $line in
        'To: '*)
                printf "${LF}%s" "$LANG_TO ${line#To: }"
        'Cc: '*) ...similar...
        'Subject: '*) ...similar...
        ' '*)   # continuation line
                printf "%s" "$line"
                print "${LF}\n"
done <"$PATCH" >"$1"

Instead of printing right away, you can also accumulate the data in
variables and print them right before the 'cat'. I would do that only if
a particular order of To:, Cc:, and Subject: is required in the output.

(I don't know how the "do not delete this line" line fits in the
picture, but I'm sure you can figure it out.)
