This may be a bigger issue, and why the Inventory sha is failing.
Because if your mailing is stripping off whitespace in attachments, then
it is changing the text.
For instance, it is certainly possible for me to commit a file with
\tx = y
\tx += 1
(naturally \t stands for the tab character.)
If your mailer strips off that intermediate "\t" then it changes the
file. So that when I apply the cset, it will not generate exactly the
same text. And that is forbidden.
