the round trip 

1)  git-format-patch --mbox --keep-subject

2)  git-applymbox -k

is not perfect for revisions where there is only the subject.

An example is c35a7b8d806317dc1762e36561cbd31c2530dd9c in git archive

Original text is:

   Skip merges in format-patch.

After round trip:

 Skip merges in format-patch.

    git-format-patch-script |    3 ++-
    1 files changed, 2 insertions(+), 1 deletions(-)

I know I'm a bit annoying ;-)


P.S: I say 'revision', and 'git archive' but are very common also 'commit' and
'git repository'. This is just a silly example where a common dictionary 
should be useful.
