Support for the other extended header lines would be useful for me too.
I might have a go at implementing them (and binary patches) at some
point in the future.

If there is a better way, I would be very interested in finding out what it is.

Feeding the output from 'git format-patch' to patch is the
best way I've had come up with yet. patch (given the '-g 1' option)
will automatically check out the files that are to be patched.
I have wrapped that in a simple script that retrieves the commit
comment from the patch and check in the files with that commit
