This is a great way to end up accidentally submitting/committing
patches that contain things they shouldn't. It's hard to end up with
truly self-contained patches in GCC, and if i don't tag what i'm
working on with the changelist i'm working on it for, you can forget
why it's there.
Which isn't just bad when it happens, it makes you look bad, too.
