Yes, that would be useful. We should perhaps to the From: and To:
headers too. Here's my current version (thanks for the feedback)...

The remaining problem is that the invocation of 'date' doesn't work with
new versions of coreutils. This...

   date=(${rest#*> })
   sec=${date[0]}; tz=${date[1]}
   dtz=${tz/+/+ }; dtz=${dtz/-/- }
   pdate="$(date -Rud "1970-01-01 UTC + $sec sec $dtz" 2>/dev/null)"

... doesn't work any more on FC-5, because:

 $ date -Rud '1970-01-01 UTC + 1147104611 sec + 0100'
date: invalid date `1970-01-01 UTC + 1147104611 sec + 0100'
