I've taken that revert now, but yes, in general, it's much better if a
patch is sent separately from the discussion as a very explicit patch
(ie subject line has that usual "[PATCH] ..." format etc) simply
because I get too much email and I can often miss things otherwise.
Particularly inside a thread where the developers are discussing
things, I go "ah, good, things are still being discussed" without
looking any closer into the details.

That's particularly true when traveling - I only noticed this one on
this second reminder email.. I'm home now, but Friday, when you sent
it originally, was 45 hours long for me with 24 hours on airplanes and
airports, so I had entirely missed the original email back then.
