Subject Address list parser expects unfolded field body. Does that make sense?

The address list parser currently chokes on folded field values that are 
otherwise perfectly valid. That seems somewhat illogical to me. It 
really took me a while to figure out what was wrong with the address 
list until I stumbled upon a commend about the parser expecting unfolded 
fields. The very cryptic exception message did not really help either.

What is the reason for this restriction? It is because folded values are 
difficult to parse with jjtree? Should not we unfold field values 
automatically prior to feeding them to the parser?
