%decode() ought to do the right thing (it's used in the shipped scan
format) ... but you don't want to do that.

We can't (yet) ENCODE RFC2047 headers.  So if we decode a From: or Subject:
with non-ASCII characters, we're kinda stuck because we'll be sending out
something that's invalid according to the RFCs.  Right now leaving the
encoded headers intact is probably our best bet; that way capapable mailers
can still understand them.
