Patchwork itself doesn't impose a size limit for patches, but it may be
limited by other things, like the maximum size of columns in the
database, or even the mailing list itself.

Are you really sending 1.8MB patches out to all members of your list
though? :) Perhaps there's a cleaner way to do this - did you know that
patchwork also parses git pull requests?
