I just wanted a single, simple thing somebody who's unfamiliar with git,
and who doesn't care about git, could cut and paste.  I always like it
when projects have instructions, starting from scratch, in one single

           When recording the commit, append a line that says "(cherry picked
           from commit ...)" to the original commit message in order to
           indicate which commit this change was cherry-picked from.

Oh, yeah, that seems nice.

Yes, that's probably easier.  I thought it may confuse the user less if
it's done in two steps (first cherry-pick the change, which may or may
not work), and then do the commit amendment.  But it may be less
confusing to do both things in one step...
