    Description

      The current implementation only handles newlines but not the other two (dollar sign and backslash) character for which RFC 4517 specifies an encoding, meaning that it can't handle addresses containing these characters.

      These characters are rare in real life postal addresses (even though the RFC contains a somewhat convincing example address) and this is probably the reason for why no-one else has cared until now, but it would still be better to implement the standard correctly than incompletely.
