Indeed, I encouraged Wolfgang to post what he already had to the bug, whether
updated or not.

Work doesn't need to be *complete* to be posted as a patch; if it gets part-way
there, then others can decide if they think the patch is headed in the right
direction or not, and can pick up where the patch leaves off. Having a partial
patch as a starting point in the bug-tracker is far better than having nothing
recording the previous work done.

I'd rather not discourage *anyone* from posting *any* half-complete patches to
the bug-tracker, as long as they're honest about how complete the patches are.

Wolfgang's notes on logging are helpful; perhaps we'll end up just logging to
mainlog when a message was received 8BIT and passed on non-8BIT as an RFC
violation, to aid in debugging. A new log_selector?
