maybe by using it to download mutt or something saner ? :-)

More seriously, while we don't like email attachments because they make
it impossible to comment on a patch, maybe we should encourage people
with broken mailers to post small patches in both forms :
- pure text for human review (spaces are not much of a problem here)
- MIME to apply the patch.

At least when the do so, they should insist on it at the top of the
patch, or even manually mangle the patch header so that GIT (or any
other tool) does not use it.
