Some of those patches look a little odd when viewed in an MUA anyway 
(Thunderbird or Icedove in my case), as the MIME charset is declared as 
windows-1252, but the actual text is UTF-8.  (That's most prevalent in 
the changes to zone1970.tab by PATCH 10/10.)

At least your MUA doesn't seem to screw up inline patches completely 
like most do!  I generally use git send-email to send inline patches.
