Absolutely - please go ahead!

Best practice is:
* Send patch as a unified diff that can be applied with patch -p1 (or send the 
output of "hg export <rev>")
* Send the patch inline in your mail (try sending a copy to yourself first to 
make sure your mail client doesn't munge the whitespace)
* If you haven't heard anything for a while, resend the patch (and mark it as 
resent in the subject line) - since the mailing list is high-traffic, it can 
be a somewhat lossy channel ;-)
