One '@' as in 'mailto:chr at home.se' is ok, but are two, i.e. '@@', allowed?
[Note: after a lot of reading, it's fine in some situations]
In addition, if two in a row really are needed, why not require that
the users simply escape the second '@' using %40? For example, if for some
mysterious reason I wanted to encode: InterMap:chr@@home.se, it could be
done like this:
In addition, I just tested that escaping works with pmwiki already,
i.e. this worked just fine:
The only drawback with the above is that when two '@' are needed, the
second will not appear on screen as a '@'... unless you rewrite it as:

I know, I use that now, but I keep forgetting to insert the space.

A bit ugly... ;-)

See what you think about what I wrote at the top, and if you still object,
I'll just settle for a local modification (cookbook?) like you say.
PS. I can write the recepy, but I wouldn't mind a tip on what needs
