Just a side-note here: patches that are provided by a URL (ie, those too large 
to be attached) will not be picked up by the patch tracking system at 
present. However, I could extend it to check URLs that appear in a message, 
possibly with some special syntax to let the parser know that it should 
follow the link (to reduce unnecessary downloads).

Any suggestions?
