Taking a step back:  is there really anything wrong with such commits?  Given 
that drdr and e-mail alerts are based on pushes rather than commits, it seems 
not unreasonable to just let those be intermediate commits.  I can see that 
it's a bit easier to give a nice name to a single big commit, but if the 
alternative is the fancy dance that this thread is suggesting, it seems like it 
might be simpler just to go with the simple solution (tautology alert).
