Around here I think we saw WIP too, and that makes me lean towards
Peff's earlier suggestion to allow an end-user supplied string in
front of PATCH, i.e. "-P RFC" => "--subject-prefix='RFC PATCH'",
even though I understand that those who _ONLY_ care about RFC would
prefer --rfc (5 keystrokes) over "-P RFC" (6 keystrokes).
