No, that's not acceptable.  I still have to copy-and-paste.  And in the majority of the instances where I try that, I get a result like this:

$ git am < ~/p5p/120406-perlfunc.patch 
Applying: Refer to the correct section
fatal: corrupt patch at line 21
Patch failed at 0001 Refer to the correct section

Attaching a patch, rather than pasting it inline, makes it easier for volunteers like me to apply the patch.

Thank you very much.
