Btw, it's actually better, IMHO, to just put the log message at the
top of the patch file, using the square brace idiom, like so:

   [[[
   my log message
   ]]]

   patch begins here...

That way they always travel together. All I do when I download your
patch is copy and paste the log message from the issue anyway.

Don't worry about the 'patch' program getting confused: it won't. It
has extremely good heuristics -- you could put a bowl of fruit salad
at the top of the file and 'patch' would still figure things out okay.
