Hmm, isn't it the GIT format that we've been using? I.e. the `Subject:'
header is the commit heading, anything in the e-mail body up to the first
`---' marker is the commit description (including any `From:' authorship
override in the first line), an optional section with further comments
follows (e.g. notes on the test procedure that was used, etc.) that is not
going to be committed and ends with a second `---' marker, and anything
that follows is a patch.
This can be easily prepared with `git format-patch'; of course any
additional comments have to be filled in. Once reviewed an e-mail that
has been so formatted can be commited with `git am' then.

With the GIT format in use `git send-email' can of course be used
directly for submissions.
