           Summary: Please reconsider merging the patch syntax highlight

Three years back I submitted a patch to highlight git --diff syntax in-line
inside email bodies.  It was rejected due to fear of false positives.

I've used it since and never had a false positive.  I have also found that
other people have very similar patches on GitHub, which makes me thinks its a
popular feature.

I have had a quite a few of my coworkers start using my fork of Claws just to
get the patch coloring, and subsequently go back to Thunderbird because of the
extra hassle of having to compile from source and rebase.  I think it would be
a really good thing for the project if the feature got merged.

Patches are available here:

Please let me know if I can improve them somehow.
