"git am --scissors" is a way to process such e-mail where the patch
submitter continues discussion in the top part of a message,
concludes the message with:

        A patch to do so is attached.
        -- >8 --

and then tells the MUA to read in an output from format-patch into
the e-mail buffer.  You still need to strip out unneeded headers
like the "From ", "From: " and "Date: " lines when you add the
scissors anyway, and this is applicable only for a single-patch
series, so the "feature" does not fit well as a format-patch option.
