Either way is fine on this list, and, while I can of course only speak
for myself, I don't find one harder to handle than the other,
particularly for one-patch series.  It comes down to whichever is
easiest for the sender.

With a single inline patch like yours, the placement of the text that
isn't meant for the commit message needs some special consideration.  If
your message is fed to 'git am', the quoted text above would go into the
commit message, so the person applying would need to amend it to clean
it up.

There are two options to deal with this extra text: 1) place it under
the "---" at the end of the commit message or 2) add a "-- >8 --"
between the extra text and the main commit message text, which can be
automatically stripped out by passing -c to 'git am'.  The first option
works well for things like extra notes but reads a bit awkward for text
that would more naturally lead the message.

Below is an example of the second method.  The From header is only
needed to override my From header from the actual mail.  I've added a
changelog entry.

Pushed as a5d765481.  Thanks!
