That works, thanks!

For anything bigger please attach a patch - whitespace gets converted in
mailers and I'd rather take a patch from somebody than risk a copy/paste
error or "I must have typo'd that when I manually applied it" error...

We prefer to be able to track the bug reports and progress easier.  We
also have some bugs that take longer to find and fix than others.

It's your choice as to how - if they are clearly all on-controversial
you can put them all in a single patch file and "attach" that to the bug
report.  If some are controversial, those are best handled as separate
patch files.  Possibly even separate  bug reports.
