Yes that's exactly the idea. Scrubber already takes the charset and
RFC3676 parameters from the first text/plain part, so I made the patch
to take transfer-encoding from it as well.  Without the patches, mailman
always sets content-transfer-encoding of the flattened message according
to Python's default (e.g. base64 for UTF-8). After patching it will preserve
the sender's choice: QP / BASE64 / 8bit (None).
