        outfp is the output file-like object for writing the message to.  It
        must have a write() method.

        Optional mangle_from_ is a flag that, when True (the default if policy
        is not set), escapes From_ lines in the body of the message by putting
        a `>' in front of them.

        Optional maxheaderlen specifies the longest length for a non-continued
        header.  When a header line is longer (in characters, with tabs
        expanded to 8 spaces) than maxheaderlen, the header will split as
        defined in the Header class.  Set maxheaderlen to zero to disable
        header wrapping.  The default is 78, as recommended (but not required)
        by RFC 2822.

        The policy keyword specifies a policy object that controls a number of
        aspects of the generator's operation.  If no policy is specified,
        the policy associated with the Message object passed to the
        flatten method is used.

        specified when the Generator instance was created.

        unixfrom is a flag that forces the printing of a Unix From_ delimiter
        before the first object in the message tree.  If the original message
        has no From_ delimiter, a `standard' one is crafted.  By default, this
        is False to inhibit the printing of any From_ delimiter.

        Note that for subobjects, no From_ line is printed.

        linesep specifies the characters used to indicate a new line in
        the output.  The default value is determined by the policy specified
        when the Generator instance was created or, if none was specified,
        from the policy associated with the msg.
