The patches were removed by content filtering because they were not
attached with content-type text/plain, however I assume they are the
same as in the bug report at

For those patches, I don't see the need for any patch to Scrubber,
since what I think your patch will do is encode the "Attachment
Scrubbed" message with the encoding of the scrubbed attachment. I
don't think that's either appropriate or what you want. The scrubbed
attachment itself is decoded.

The Decorate patch is interesting. I may have some questions, but I'll
post those to the bug report when I have time to work on it.
