Wrap URL for password reset in angle brackets

Some email clients do not handle well URLs that wrap across lines; that is, they fail to make them clickable in their entirety.
This can confuse WP users who are emailed a URL to reset their passwords, because clicking does not lead to a valid URL. See this wp-hackers thread:
Core could fix this for several (most? all?) problematic email clients by simply enclosing the URL in angle brackets (the less than and greater than signs) before sending it.
I attach a tentative patch to get us going.
See also a couple of mentions/recommendations of the angle brackets as delimiters for URIs in plain text:
