More importantly, is this change even desirable?

The original motivation behind the "Applying:" message was to help
the user identify which one of the 100+ patches being fed to the
command, and it was not about showing what we ended up committing.
When you are running the command interactively, we do grab the
edited result since f23272f3fd84 (git-am -i: report rewritten title,
2007-12-04), but I tend to feel that the automated munging done by
applypatch-msg falls into a different category.
