[Rt-devel] [patch] rt-mailgate --extension DWIMmery

Since action is required (or at least documented as such) it seems that
  --action correspond --extension action
should default to an action of correspond for messages without an extension.
Thusly rt at example.com an
rt+correspond at example.com<rt%2Bcorrespond at example.com>are equivalent,
whereas rt+comment at example.com <rt%2Bcomment at example.com> is not.

The simple patch below (3.8.0) simply falls back to the value supplied on
command-line if EXTENSION is undef. This should work for queue and action,
and ticket will simply remain null; though a warning may be raised about
undefined value.
