[XeTeX] Hard wrapping by list software

Though I can't remember when this exactly began, it seems all  
messages to this list are now hard wrapped automatically by the list  
software before being sent. This makes it difficult to send messages  
containing long paths or URLs, because these are broken onto several  
lines, e.g.

> As offered by the microtype package for pdfTeX, probably: character
> protrusion and font expansion. See /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/
> doc/latex/microtype/microtype.pdf.

and when copying then pasting them into a text field a space is  
inserted where the line has been broken (at least when using Apple's  
Mail, I haven't tried with Thunderbird):

What do people think? Should something be done about this?
