Re: [PATCH] size and force text files to be considered binary in mailer.py

Making mailer.py aware of renames would be cool. Currently if you
rename a file you get the old file with all --- and the new one with +
++. Instead it should diff the file with the new name against the
contents of the file with the old name resulting in only the actual
changes made to the file after the rename (if any).
