If I let myself to drift off a bit...

git format-patch always creates a new directory like:
.git/outgoing/[patchname]<FROM commit short sha1>...<TO commit short sha1>
and possible runs a custom command afterwards. Like cd to the patch
directory, open the cover-letter in your editor etc.

git send-email without patches specified gives you a list of
patch-series from .git/outgoing to choose from with the latest generated
patchserie already selected.
