I wouldn't advise people to put patches in the body, since most mail
clients auto-wrap and strip leading/trailing whtiespace by default
(which corrupts empty context lines).  Instead, I usually advise people
to attach patches as a file named *.txt.  That filename pattern usually
results in text/plain attachments.
