&gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; wrapped over about 75-80 columns double-wraps which is unpleasant to

&gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; Can we unify our evangelist forces and standardize on a message

&gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; format? What about RFC 2646: text/plain; format=flowed?

&gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; Embedding any more formatting characters in emails than strictly

&gt; &amp;gt; &amp;gt; necessary sucks, and autogenerated HTML sucks hard.

Bam, Jakub is excluded from the debate.

Incidentally, while we're trying to be fascist about email

style, I hate 'contributions' of +1.
