Summary: Parse and format RFC 2822 email addresses and groups

This module implements RFC 2822
parser and formatter of email addresses and groups. It parses an input
string from email headers which contain a list of email addresses or
a groups of email addresses (like From, To, Cc, Bcc, Reply-To, Sender,
...). Also it can generate a string value for those headers from a
list of email addresses objects.

Parser and formatter functionality is implemented in XS and uses
shared code from Dovecot IMAP server.

It is a drop-in replacement for the Email::Address module
which has several security issues. E.g. issue CVE-2015-7686 (Algorithmic complexity vulnerability),
which allows remote attackers to cause denial of service, is still
present in Email::Address version 1.908.

Email::Address::XS module was created to finally fix CVE-2015-7686.

Existing applications that use Email::Address module could be easily
switched to Email::Address::XS module. In most cases only changing
`use Email::Address' to `use Email::Address::XS' and replacing every
`Email::Address' occurrence with `Email::Address::XS' is sufficient.

So unlike Email::Address, this module does not use
regular expressions for parsing but instead native XS implementation
parses input string sequentially according to RFC 2822 grammar.

Additionally it has support also for named groups and so can be use
instead of the Email::Address::List module.
