[Nmh-workers] quotes in personal names

MS Outlook (and maybe other mailers) inserts double quotes around the
personal names in header lines, like this:

    From: "Nobody Special" <address@hidden>

Unfortunately, the current version of nmh doesn't remove these quotes,
so they appear in the output of 'scan,' which is irritating.  I fixed
this for my nmh by hacking fmt_scan.c so that the friendly() command
removes the double quotes. 

Is there an "offical" way to remove the quotes already present in nmh?
If not, I can send a patch for fmt_scan.c to do it.
