Currently for web users, I suggest:

        curl $URL >tmpXXX

        # open tmpXXXX and tag+copy to patchesXXX using MUA of choice:
        # (also seems to be what Jeff describes):
        mutt -f tmpXXX

        git am patchesXXXX

Adding more links might still fall down in cases where
fixup/squash patches are sent for specific patches in a series;
or when a v{N+1} series is posted in-reply-to an existing

Perhaps adding checkbox next to each item might work as a
select-to-include-in-mbox download form.  However, I'm already
finding the lack of horizontal space disconcerting.

Maybe the YYYY-MM-DD could be shortened to YYYYMMDD.  It would
