Not really;  When I use git format-patch with --attach I get
text/x-patch as the MIME type, which is fine.  Problems only start if
users have poorly configured mail client that attach as octet-stream or
other binary types.  Then mail clients can't display the attachment
inline as they don't know the format is really displayable.
