In general, the rule would be that a patch published only by email can
be amended at low cost, since very few people apply such patches
directly to their own repositories.

Once a patch has been committed to the main on-line repository however,
a large number of people are likely to have pulled it, so amending is no
longer suitable, and recording a second patch is preferable.
