These proper text encodings are easy to _apply_, because the raw email is
uncorrupted.

However, attachments are still broken for a very fundamental reason:
basically no email client will ever quote them on replies. Which means
that if somebody has commentary about some specific part of the patch, the
attachement is _totally_ the wrong thing to do.

In other words, there's a reason I encourage people VERY STRONGLY to use
in-line patches. If you have a broken mailer that corrupts whitespace,
please just fix it.
