That would make the code not clean room.

I propose we ask Sun for a formal definition of the parser for this  
class, and in a parallel track make an effort to try to match their  
bugs.  The code from the second track doesn't have to be perfect, but  
just good enough.  We simply let our users know that our goal with  
the "implement.sun.javamail.bugs=true" code is to emulate the sun  
bugs, and if they find something that produces different results for  
the same text, we consider it a bug.
