Wrong.. patches should be posted/digested by list recipients. If
subscribers can't be bothered to read patches, they should reconsider
their initial application for acceptance to this list. I'll happily
de-uuencode gunzip and whatever, but I _don't like_ to have to chase
it down to see it. Please post patches.. _not_ URL's.
