I'd also agree with this. The RFC 2047 encoding seems to be
unambigous, and it's something people writing e-mail software
will have to do anyway. The %HH encoding of URLs is tied
up with the notion of reserved characters and semantics
in a way that causes trouble. You can't just apply it
as a transport "wrapper" and undo it later.
