	Rename it a bit:  "struct token822"
	After all, it is about RFC-822 tokens.

	And BTW: there is no RELEASE of 2.99.49p9, only my
	snapshot which I needed to copy the sources to my
	laptop a few days ago.  (I have been traveling, and
	hunting a leak of one malloc()ed conscell object at
	every crossbar run -- effectively each processed
	recipient has leaked one conscell worth of memory.)

	Indeed.  If you make the change, and diff it against
	2.99.49p9snap1, it will be easy for me to incorporate it.

	Oh yes, send the diff to:  zmhacks@zmailer.org
