} Biggest problem is if the change in the mail doesn't exactly match the
} files being patched, in which case there's not identifying information
} in the mail to figure out the commit.  If the person grabbing the patch
} uses "git note" manually, or as a filter to grab X-Seq, then it works.

I'm not sure this is necessary?  We currently rely on people to manually
insert the X-Seq into their commit logs.  Attempting to automatically
extract it from the list archives sounds like a complete nightmare.

Further we sometimes reference X-Seq numbers of messages that don't have
a patch at all, just to connect a change to a background discussion.
