sieve/vacation: subject decoded but not reencoded

I noticed a problem with non ASCII chars in a Subject of a message,
which is automatically answered by sieve/vacation.
Vacation reuses the original Subject line, but decodes the MIME in it
and sends out the decoded (8bit) subject without reencoding it.

So a message with "Subject: =?iso-8859-1?Q?T=E4st?=" (correct quoted
printable MIME encoding) is answered with "Subject: Täst" (8bit
without any MIME encoding).

Wouldn't it be better to simply reuse the original Subject without any
decoding?  Otherwise the decoded Subject needs to be newly MIME
encoded, doesn't it?
