On that note, _please_ can people submit patches

  1. as attachments,
  2. with a text/plain MIME type, and preferably
  3. using hg export with a decent comment and a Signed-off-by: line in place.

It makes life a lot easier!

If your mailer doesn't do text/plain attachments properly, and for some reason
you still want to use such a broken heap of four-ex, then the next best thing
is plain-text inline in the message (because most people can't review patches
very easily if your mailer has sent it as an octet-stream).
