 It worked for me, I'll send you a copy by mime-attach.
 To get stuff out of gnats you generally need to prune the leading
 space gnats stuffs in manually before feeding it to anything else.
 (Also, although this applies to patches rather than uuencode blobs,
 don't use cut and paste, from a web browser or anywhere else, as it
 tends to convert tabs to spaces and then things don't work.)
 There are plans for dragging gnats out of the 80s... really... they've
 just been moving at the speed of glaciers.
