The notion would instead be "save the attachments from the email and
apply", since each part would be a complete patch on its own. There's
still a slight problem with the header of the patch though, since it
contains the filename. Which should be encoded according to the
system locale of the person _receiving the mail_ to be directly usable
with patch. Hohum. :-)
