There shouldn't be any breaking though :|. I mean, if I was able to
break the word, I would have already done it myself. My particular
problem is with freenet keys. They are very long, and contain
characters such as commas, percent signs, dashes, slashes, etc.
Incidentally, they are prefixed with one of CHK@ USK@ or SSK@, and,
actually, sylpheed currently misreads them as email addresses, but only
up to the first comma.

I think simply leaving long words un-broken is a lot simpler and better
than creating new rules for freenet keys.
