So, it looks like mailman gobbled my patches _again_ (3rd time was not
a charm), saying 'a non text attachment was scrubbed' when the patches
*are* text files (patch.txt).

At this point I am giving up on sending them via the mailing list.
If someone wants the patches, let me know and I will send them a
tarball or post them somewhere.
