Spec URL:
"Email::Abstract" provides module writers with the ability to write
representation-independent mail handling code. For instance, in the
cases of "Mail::Thread" or "Mail::ListDetector", a key part of the code

Fixed the NEEDSWORK items, but I noticed another missing BuildRequires. Which
dragged in another tree of perl packages. perl-Mail-Box is the top of that tree
