Could you _please_ not put inline patches after the signature mark ("-- "). In my mailer (mozilla)
this causes the patch to be greyed out and, more importantly, NOT included in a reply. This, in
turn, makes it hard to comment on details in the patch.

Would it help if Alex used the documented canonical patch format,
using "---" instead of "-- "? I sorta doubt it.

I suspect it would. The "-- \n" is a documented signature mark (took me a while to find this out) and I have found no way to make mozilla do anything different with it. I don't have any documentation on "---" but it surly is not a signature mark and I suspect most mailers will not attach any signifigance to it.

BTW, George, please hit Return/Enter around column 70+...

Sorry, some how my wrap line length moved up to 100. Fixed now.
