As Geert noted, formail is probably reasonable, but I certainly
don't have moreutils across all the systems I'm using right now.

*shrug*  Since newlines after ':' are a concern and it's (probably :P)
safe to slurp entire contents of emails into memory nowadays;
some minor tweaks to the original perl invocation should work:

* use `$/ = undef' to force Perl to operate on the entire input at once
* use `m' RE modifier to ensure `^' and `$' still match SOL/EOL
  ($/ is only the input record separator, it doesn't change
   Perl's definition of "lines" for `^' and `$')

perl -i -p -e 'BEGIN{$/=undef};s|^Message-ID:\s*<?([^>]+)>?$|Link:$1|im;'
