It seems that 8bit-options are off (enable-8bit-esmtp-negotiation,
enable-8bit-nntp-posting) in the default pine.conf by default.

It's by design of the pine developers. QP has been a standard in mail for many
years now, and should't be a problem. As for news, what is used varies by

newsreader anyway.

I've added the options, and they'll end up in Raw Hide.
