I agree with this 100%.

u-boot-users is the only mailing list I've encountered that has an (in 
my opinion) unreasonably low limit.  That's why I suggested increasing 
the limit to 100KB.

One person in Freescale once made a patch that was over 400KB, and we 
asked him to rewrite it because he included multiple types of changes 
into one patch.  Even with the changes, the 40KB limit was a real 
problem, but 100KB would have made things a lot easier.
