+;;; Commentary:
+
+;; This package provides an abstraction to RFC822-style messages, used in
+;; mail news, and some other systems.  The simple syntactic rules for such
+;; headers, such as quoting and line folding, are routinely reimplemented
+;; in many individual packages.  This package removes the need for this
+;; redundancy by representing message headers as association lists,
+;; offering functions to extract the set of headers from a message, to
+;; parse individual headers, to merge sets of headers, and to format a set
+;; of headers.
+
+;; The car of each element in the message-header alist is a symbol whose
+;; print name is the name of the header, in all lower-case.  The cdr of an
+;; element depends on the operation.  After extracting headers from a
+;; message, it is a string, the value of the header.  An extracted set of
+;; headers may be parsed further, which may turn it into a list, whose car
+;; is the original value and whose subsequent elements depend on the
+;; header.  For formatting, it is evaluated to obtain the strings to be
+;; inserted.  For merging, one set of headers consists of strings, while
+;; the other set will be evaluated with the symbols in the first set of
+;; headers bound to their respective values.
+
+;;; Code:
+
+(require 'cl)
+
+;; Make the byte-compiler shut up.
