  This works nicely.  Also for this:
	To: xxx (lengthy comment
	    on extension as well)
	To: xxx (lenthy comment (nested even)) (another
	    on extension)
turns into
	To: xxx (lenthy comment (nested even) another on extension)

	To: "comments in quotes" "another" xxx
leads to a disaster (quotes disappear), however:
	To: "comments in quotes" "another" <xxx>
works... (it is caused by router stripping quotes to find local parts,
but it doesn't recognize presence of non-quoted xxx to be address..)

wonder about that...
Comment end AND comment start side by side delete each other.
