Sylpheed is using a character setup (or whatever it's called) that
creates line breaks after a number of common symbols.  That means users
have to do a fair of amount of on-the-fly reformatting. There hasn't
been discussion about it for quite awhile. Hiro and perhaps some of
Sylpheed's users prefer it this way over the alternatives.
