If this was a question to me, then the answer is:

I'm not convinced this should be merged.  For the use case of 
PROXY protocol bypass a more logical solution would be to avoid 
removing the PROXY protocol header at all.  If one needs to bypass 
it and extract the information at the same time, something similar 
to ssl preread as recently implemented in the stream module might 
be a better solution.

If you have some ideas on how to properly support PROXY protocol 
in mail - please comment on the relevant patch.
