Thanks for the patch, and I'm sorry it's been so long without a reply.

I don't know Python, so I can't comment much on the patch itself, but it
does seem like the max mail size and max diffs could be specified as
parameters instead of hard-coded.

Is anyone else able to comment? Is this a feature we'd like mailer.py
to have? I can file a patch issue if no one responds within a few days.
