Quilt uses those Content-Disposition headers to preserve the patch
filenames; the full headers look like:

  Content-Disposition: inline; filename=foo.patch

Various mail clients use that as the default filename when saving
emails, but there's been at least one other mail client that didn't
handle those headers very well.

Is this a new problem with gmail?

I'm not sure whose workflows would break if we kill those headers
altogether, but maybe we can omit them by default.
