-1 for this patch because
a) there is a dependency on geronimo-common that is inappropriate
   for a standalone spec module
b) a change was made to the impl of URLName.equals() that makes it
   behave differently to the RI and which I explicitly asked Alex
   not to make

These may seem minor but they are symptomatic of a coding approach that may lead to other
deviations and I think the entire patch should be reviewed in detail. If someone steps up
to do that then it may be appropriate to commit this to a separate branch until done.

Enclosed is a patch with the majoriy of the missing methods implemented. This will bring the
JavaMail API into alpha quality, and other code can now work with the JavaMail codebase.

Some features are still missing at this point;
o Encoding of charactersets
o Ability to deal with multipart/* mime types
o Limitations on the JAF

However, suitable features exist in the Java Activation Framework to allow simple messages
to be created and sent using the MimeMessage class.
