Well, I certainly don't have a problem with this.  I in fact get
*really* *annoyed* when I get patch submissions where the subject line
is replicated in the body, since I then have to manually edit the mail
message before I can run "git am" on the mail message.

Who's been complaining?  I can certainly tell you I'll complain in the
opposite direction, but that's because it actually causes me more work
as a maintainer.  If people are kvetching, maybe they should complain
to git mailing list and ask for a different git commit to e-mail
message convention --- but it's really not hard to look at the subject
