Bug ID: 5888
           Summary: Send both patch and hg bundle as multipart/alternative
           Product: Mercurial
           Version: 4.6
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: feature
          Priority: wish
         Component: patchbomb

Importing patches can sometimes be lossy for various reasons, while hg bundles
are not.
However, hg bundles are opaque and tricker to integrate with tooling such as
patchwork, or plain in-line replying from email clients.

Potential improvement:
Send a MIME multipart/alternative container, with the plain text patch as one
part and the hg bundle as the other.
Assuming tooling capable of recursing into MIME containers, one should be able
to get the benefits of both patch submission methods at the cost of a larger
email size.
