Some public email archives wrap plain-text email in <pre> tags, but
that causes problems with unwrapped messages. I see a lot less of
that these days, but what seems to be commonplace now is the removal
of all indentation, making inline patches very difficult too grok.
What's the solution? I know some people who run an otherwise nice
archive that I'd like to send a suggestion to.
