People might have scripts using it but I doubt anyone still relies on that
because git mail never did that inline/filename dance so scripts which
convert mboxes to quilt need to have a mechanism to create filenames
anyway. My personal script uses the subject line to create the filenames
and I never tried to use the inline filename as those filenames are often
enough complete garbage.

Many quilt users still do.

It is. There is nothing else in the headers which could cause that. quilt
mail format is pretty simplistic.

No objections.
