Is this RFC2822 compliant ( Not an
expert of the norm, but my understanding is that you're allowed to use
either "Name <>" (name-addr) or
(addr-spec), and that comments are allowed within parenthesis like
"Stable <> (4.8+)".

What is this [4.8+] supposed to mean?

The guilty function is parse_mailboxes in perl/ It should be
rather easy to modify it but I need to understand the spec before I can
try to implement anything.
