Mail::Field is broken. The stack trace is useless because it's obscured by
an AUTOLOAD routine which automagically loads the appropriate
Mail::Field::* "subclass"; said AUTOLOAD does a ucfirst, but should be
doing an lc (or the files should be renamed...).
(The documentation matches Mail::Field::_header_pkg_name, so I conclude
that the *.pm files are misnamed.)
