Ah, I see. You are combining with the pass before, not the pass after.

I do not think this is any more (nor less) efficient than what I posted.
We still pass over the space after split->mail_end one additional time
searching for the closing bracket. Mine is _slightly_ more efficient in
that by going backwards we can stop when we see the first '>', avoiding
looking at the space between "mail_end" and "last_ket". But that space
is 0 in the normal case, and even if it is not, we are talking about
tens of bytes at most. So I doubt it would ever matter.

My version seems a little clearer to me, but that is probably because I
wrote it. If you strongly prefer the other, feel free to mark up my
