Trac doesn't put file attachments in the emails, and that's probably
what we want.  Instead of hundreds of copies of the 50k patch, it's
on the web for those who are interested.  (And it becomes part of
the record, too.)

The current procedure, where you have to create the ticket before you
darcs record, so you'll have a ticket number to put in the patch, is
quite cumbersome.
