I tested the resulting emails by first sending them to myself and then using git am to apply them and all was fine (except for a warning or two about whitespace at the end of lines, which I assume is not a big deal.  PLEASE don't tell me I have to reformat my patches to get rid of a little tiny bit of harmless whitespace!).  I'm still learning git and the whole source-control-as-patches-flying-around workflow and I know I'm making lots of mistakes, but I am sorry!

git hint - from your checkout directory:

chmod +x .git/hooks/{applypatch-msg,commit-msg,pre-commit,pre-rebase}

This will warn you about useful things (including whitespace issues) 
when you go to commit your changes.
