Yeah, That's typical. The problem is that guilt seems to kill
anything I add to the patch headers below a "---" separator.  Hence
if i don't put it the in commit message it doesn't stick as I rebase
my working branches, and hence doesn't get included in the
patchbombs I send direct from the repository.

For stuff that is in a series that I'm tracking in a separate branch I
can probably just keep versioning changes in the series header (the
patch 0/N message), but for individual patches it's a bit harder.
I'll see what I can do to track this more easily in my workflow.
