I think there are one too many sets of quotes there.

The location of the To: placement is not a problem, mail headers can
appear in any order, but git does seem to have a bug in that it does
not include a blank line to separate the headers from the message
body.  That's not good.  (At least in today's git version of git.)

I like the way git is *now* but the only real problem with it is that
it is mutating so quickly that I wonder if I will like it *later*
after it has finished evolving.  It is hard to predict.
