Thank you for following up on this.  I'm pretty sure just removing the
sentence about git send-email wouldn't have been enough, as I expect
some people could read "use a shell command like 'git format-patch -1'"
and think "oh well, git send-email will work just as well then".

I think your amendments make things a lot clearer.

FWIW, I just fooled around with rmail and mboxes from Debbugs; adding

- "\|^x-mailer: git-send-email" to rmail-nonignored-headers
- "\|^x-mailer:" to rmail-highlighted-headers

makes it slightly easier to spot patches sent by git send-email AFAICT.
Of course, I'm not an rmail guru; there probably are better ways to
solve the recognizability problem.
