I'm just giving you a realistic estimate that we won't spend time on this. We
have more important things to fix in Trac than a double email.

That someone could be you! That would be very welcome!

Option 4: I'm glad we now have notifications for attachments. It used to be
quite annoying that you wouldn't notice if somebody attached a patch to a
ticket without leaving a comment.

They are, however, not worded to avoid bias against the status quo.
