Inline PGP has a problem with lines that start with a hyphen, which
occur in patches.

I think our options are:

- Use detached signatures
- Indent the patches one space
- Tell gpg(1) not to escape minuses on the first column
  - Okay if people use gpg(1)
  - Breaks compatibility with other PGP implementations
- Do nothing
  - Okay if people use GNU patch
  - Not okay if people use 'svn patch' or a third-party patch(1) implementation
