Email Reply Parser for Python

A port of GitHub's Email Reply Parser library, by the fine folks at Zapier.

Summary

Email Reply Parser makes it easy to grab only the last reply to an on-going email thread.

Say you'd like to parse out a user's response to your transaction email messages:

Yes that is fine, I will email you in the morning.
