PLEASE don't ever send binary builds as attachments again.  Spamming the
list with 2 copies of binary attachments, where each mail was
individually close to 6 megabytes, consumes way too many resources both
on the mail server and on individual subscribers behind bandwidth
limits.  Sending the text patch (several kilobytes) is sufficient.
Furthermore, your binary build is unlikely to run on anyone with a
system configured differently than yours, while anyone can apply your
patch and rebuild it to test the quality of your patch on their system.
