What is valid on the left hand side of an email address is extremely
weird anyway.  Practically anything is allowed.  A pseudo grammar for
them is in RFC822.  There's also much fun trying to parse them in
Friedl's book on regular expressions (the owl book).  He ends up with a
mammoth 5k regex to parse email addresses...
