Unfortunately some of the patches were still messed up, at least as
received here. Patch 04 was double-encoded: it said "Content-Type:
text/plain; charset=UTF-8" and "Content-Transfer-Encoding:
quoted-printable" and the body contained strings like
"Tucum=C3=83=C2=A1n", which decode to "TucumÃ¡n" instead of to the
correct "Tucumán". As Ian notes, patch 10 was double-encoded in a
different way: it said "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=windows-1252"
and "Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable" and contained strings
like "Le=C3=B3n", which decode to "LeÃ³n" instead of to the correct
"León". I hope I fixed the decoding errors correctly before installing
this stuff into the experimental version on GitHub.

Me too. And when attaching non-ASCII patches, I try to remember to
rename the patch from FOO.patch to FOO.txt so that Thunderbird doesn't
mess up the encoding.
