Yeah, this would be good.  Sometimes people find a bug who are not the
OP and write up a patch.  If they could just attach it to the bug that
would be great.  Just as long as there is a way to flag that an issue
has a patch and not just some log output or canonical bug example.

I don't remember either.  =)  Probably a keyword since that makes the
most sense.

I think Martin means it is a showstopper if we don't have a way to
mark items as containing a patch, not for your email summary, Paul.
It is a rather critical thing to be able to get a list of all
available patches.
