	[jgarzik@...tzel netdev-2.6]$ grep '^Subject:' /g/tmp/mbox
	Subject: [PATCH 1/2][FOO][BAR][BAZ] tulip: napi full quantum bug

is merged as

	commit e34e20a3ae1ec30856427d260f454b8984ebced2
	Author: Stephen Hemminger <>
	Date:   Thu Dec 13 09:35:45 2007 -0800

	    tulip: napi full quantum bug

And that matches existing practice, where people put tons of 
not-to-be-merged metadata into the subject lines.
