Another useful command line:

git send-email -5 --in-reply-to=... \
 --annotate --compose --subject-prefix=PATCHv2

which lets me send a 5-patch series as a v2 reply to an earlier email,
with a cover letter, and allowing me to add comments to each individual
patch to document what changed from v1.  The only thing that makes this
hard is that thunderbird 2.x used to have the mnenhy plugin to make it
very easy to get the Message-ID of any given message, but that plugin
has not been ported to thunderbird 3.0 so I have to view the source of a
message and manually find the MessageID.
