Special handling for .diff/.patch attachments
I suppose it's your webserver's mime type config, but if I click on a diff attached to an issue, the browser thinks it's a binary file and wants to download it. Even better than fixing that, I think, would be to treat it specially (like images) and view it in something like the SCM diff viewer.

One alternative to special treatment of *.diff and *.patch... what Launchpad does is give you a checkbox to say the attachment is a patch. This could also trigger an indicator that someone has attached a resolution to an issue, which could be of use to developers.

Actually it's not my webserver, download is forced unless the attachment is an image:
