While I don't like altering comments, I also don't like people posting
large PKGBUILDs and patches in that section as they quickly become

That's why I never bothered changing it. The proper text is still
preserved in the emails and database. I'd think maintainers would sooner
extract PKGBUILDs and patches from their email, but I could be wrong.  I
wouldn't mind applying this patch anymore though. I can just put a big
message asking people to use email or pastebin to suggest changes to
maintainers. Hopefully people can follow that practice.

Please check your email client. Somehow it altered the patch and tabs
were converted to spaces, so this won't apply.
