For when it's necessary to send binaries or 8-bit characters, why don't
we promote a MIME type application/x-uudecode? Then you, Linus, can just
feed the whole email to uudecode, and those who want MIME can also see it
just as easily as other MIME mail as long as they add the type to their
mime.types file (if it isn't already there...)

# unpgp - remove PGP magic from a patch
exec sed 's/^- -/-/'
