My flow looks like this:
1. git format-patch -v<n> --cover-letter <params> -o <dir>
2. vi <dir>/v<n-1>-0000-cover-letter.patch <dir>/v<n>-0000-cover-letter.patch

copy subject and blurb, avoiding patchset stats

3. add changelog update blurb as appropriate

4. git send-email <dir>/v<n>-*

The following perl script automates step 2 above.  Hacked together
rather quickly, so I'm only proposing it for contrib for now.  If others
see the need, we can add docs, tests and move it to git proper.
