I also like tracking my notes to self/reviewers in the commit message as
I do a rebase.  'git send-email' automatically adds --- at the end of
your commit message, so I personally end up using 'git send-email
--annotate' and manually move the --- line to occur before my separation
point.  I think you can also stick --- in the middle of your commit
message at which point 'git am' will truncate from the first instance
when applying your email, without you having to edit things when
mailing, although I haven't tried it myself (at any rate, I have seen
patches from others with double --- lines, and assume that the doubled
line is a result of the literal --- line in their commit message).

Supposedly, it is also possible to use 'git notes' coupled with
notes.rewrite* options in your .gitconfig to track your notes over a
rebase, as well as an undocumented option to 'git send-email' to have
your notes automatically included after a lone --- line, but that are of
git is woefully under-documented and probably has issues that need
fixing before turning it into a daily workflow.
