Please don't. Bandwidth is order of magnitudes cheaper than
people's time, attention, *and* expertise. A skilled reviewer
costs a LOT more than the few fraction of a penny you save
compressing. It's simply a bad tradeoff.

Not to mention that if the patch is inlined, it gets nicely archived
it the mail archives, indexed by search engines, etc.
