Oh come on, please don't accuse me of even thinging about such crap! :)
Sorry, I don't care what I use -- tabs, spaces, all that matters to me
is for the thing to line up. Since those pages are maintained at my site,
it is important to keep them in synch, otherwise I'll not be able to
provide good updates.

Ouch. Don't do that -- just reject it if it doesn't apply, I'll send
it again, no problem.

Sure, if you so prefer. But the problem is that you used copy & paste.
Just pipe the email body to patch, that'll do the job.
