Well, that's not /exactly/ the point.  The reason for these little
hacks was just to strip off the mailto: part of an address before
passing it to a full-featured mailer program like elm or mutt to use
as an external mailer.  The only way to make that /really/ portable is
to write it in C, and that would be using a surface-to-air missile to
kill a housefly.
