your mailer does just one char ?  i should switch from kmail to whatever

Peter: if you update to git-1.6.2 (well, maybe what i describe happens in 
earlier versions, but i know 1.6.2 is good), then you can use --cover-letter 
to `git format-patch` and `git send-email` will thread things the way Scott 
describes if you send all the patches together: `git send-email 0*.patch`.

the cover letter will be the thread starter and all the patches in the series 
will refer to that one rather than each N patch referring to N-1 in the
