Fair enough. The most common workaround for that problem is to attach
patches uncompressed, as regular text files (MIME type text/plain).
That way you don't need to paste a separate copy, as we will see the
attachment inline. To encourage an email client to label the file as
text/plain, if you don't have direct control over this, give it a name
of "something.txt".
