I used to do that (with xclip), but something changed recently in gmail
that broke pasting the output, which now gets horribly reformatted
unless I copy from the terminal.

I now tried without sucess to set the diff.statGraphWidth git-config
variable. I'll probably just use "git request-pull ... |cat" in the future.
I've done that in the past, but had not realized that I'm currently
causing the bad line breaks.
