Right. If you have a broken MUA, the workaround is to attach the patch
instead of just pasting it into the message body. But if we can't
count on attachments getting through the list, perhaps we would have to
always paste them inline, and accept that to get a patch to the list
undisturbed you have to simply not use Gmail or whatever.

That would be nice.
