For trivially small examples (like this is) I think most people find

as an attachment.  I certainly do.
I just recalled this remark of yours and wanted to reply to it.
I’ve taken a habit of (almost) always including code as an attachment,
since thus
(a) there’s no chance of it getting messed up anywhere on its path and
(b) I work with Frescobaldi (as a majority of people do, I think) and
to test the code I needn’t even do any copy&paste but can just open
the file with Frescobaldi.
On the other hand it doesn’t allow commenting inline, that’s true. So
likely it’s a matter of preference. What do others think?
I tend to use an attachment with disposition "inline".
And how exactly do you do that, I’ve always been wondering?
Gnus asks me how I want my file attachments when I insert them using
C-c C-m f RET

I'm appending one here so that you can see how it looks:

Now how you insert inline attachments when using a different mail client
like, say, Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101
Thunderbird/31.8.0, I have no idea.

But I should think that a dedicated industry standard standalone mail
program should easily offer the same amount of functionality as some
add-on interpreted-language extension for a general-purpose text editor.
Doesn’t seem like there’s such a possibility in Thunderbird. I’ve asked on their support site: <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1079870>
Doesn’t seem so far-fetched that Gnus has features lacking from Thunderbird…

Thanks, Simon
