I'd actually prefer to see no patch that says "this was done with an
automatic tool".  You can use automation on your end all you want,
but the final result needs to be eyeballed before sending it out,
and at that point both the credit and the blame lies on you, not any
automated tool.

It often is a good idea to ask your search engine "What is X", and I
seem to get a positive result for "what is shareable" just fine.
