Hmm. Maybe just space them out. That's what networking already does,
ie you'll see things like
[PATCH net-next v3 0/5] patch description here
[PATCH net] some-patch-description
in subject lines. Maybe we can just encourage that format in general.
And yes, I agree, for when the targets are obvious, this clearly isn't
needed. And often they are.
So this would still likely be the exception rather than the rule, but
it would be a lot more obvious than hiding a one-liner commentary deep
in the middle of the email.
