Please use a different way of quoting messages.

A line starting with "--- " looks just like the header of a patch.  "hg
import" dropped your entire patch description, and used the RFC822
message header instead, when I saved your email and imported it.

Unfortunately, I didn't notice this until after I had applied your patch
and pushed it, and several people had pulled the change by then.

I've since fortified "hg import" so that it will reject email messages
