  Seconded. I'd add, that in fact we should standardize on quilt as an
exchange format for patches, because it's simple, and that there are
powerful tools to handle them. Basically you have almost the same power
in quilt that in many SCMs when it comes to patch reordering or
amending. I personally find git-rebase more appealing than quilt
UI-wise, but both provide the same amount of features and helpers to
avoid to shoot yourself in the foot.
