This is why my gut feeling is that we should instead have a separate
way to store a cover letter, as it doesn't necessarily have to apply
to a branch or a merge commit, but could just be annotation against a
series of commits (maybe stored as base + tip, since most series would
be linear in nature?)

However, opening an editor and amending seems quite reasonable to me
if we're just editing branch description, and then storing that as
part of merge commit would be reasonable?

I really think we want some alternative way to store it for other use
cases besides the description, though.
