Sorry, I meant the part about accepting patches directly from email.
Pine supports piping a mail to a script, this script could try to apply
the patch and extract the text in front of the patch, but it could of
course also recognize a bk patch and feed it to bk.
The important thing is to avoid two classes of patches, bk patches and
patches, which would create extra work for you. It would be no problem
to use tags, which can be easily extracted by above script, just tell
us, how they should look like.
