Usually those patchsets fail to apply and patchew keeps quiet. This series is
the first victim of a exception, seemingly. :)

Currently we don't, but we can invent one. Like:

Base: http://github.com/someone/qemu branch

for the "base on maintainer tree" case, or just inform patchew to "pull"
instead of apply:

Git: http://github.com/someone/qemu topic

for the "base on the other series" case.

Supporting this is not complicated, the tricky thing is to remember to put that
magic in cover letters every time a series doesn't base on master.

Any thoughts on the harder question? :)
