Unified interface to mail representations
EmailAbstract provides module writers with the ability to write representation-independent mail handling code. For instance, in the cases of MailThread or MailListDetector, a key part of the code involves reading the headers from a mail object. Where previously one would either have to specify the mail class required, or to build a new object from scratch, EmailAbstract can be used to perform certain simple operations on an object regardless of its underlying representation.
