I prefer inline patches, for easier commenting for example. I also find
attachments are quite annoying if I have to use the web archives and can't
just read the patch but have to download it at first. I know Peter prefers
inline for the ease of applying them with "git am" and he has already applied
a few from me.

What are the advantages of using attachments or the disadvantages of inline
through your ssh connection? When you are able to save an attachment you can
also just save the whole email and apply it, can't you?

If whitespace is damaged after copy and paste, you will notice it when
applying the malformed patch.
