Agreed, I don't want to break patchwork for everybody else. When I
sent in the patch, I wasn't sure if there was a use case for patches
in replies or not. That's why I asked for opinions. Now I know that
there is.

I'll do that if there isn't a better solution to my issue. I mostly
figured that I'm probably not the only person to have run into this
issue, so I wanted to see what other users of patchwork have to say.
Maybe there's even a way to solve the problem for everyone.
