Doesn't the mbox format auto-escape it as `>From `? Maybe it's in another
format or already parsed...

Maybe I'm too late to the party, but a better way to fix this might be to
remember the delivery state of each patch. Just a suggestion though; feel
free to dismiss it 😅

Also, since you particularly mentioned a *very* through review, a nit: in
Python we usually use `is None` instead of `== None`. Both works, though.
