Interesting. This is how I've always sent patches to you via quilt.

I usually don't put fixes sent to me through for-next, as I haven't
been convinced that that helps any. I make it a requirement to send any
patch I push into my tree for merging as a separate patch. As I usually
do that when I push to linux-next, if I send directly to you, I will
then send them individually.

The point being, when I send individual patches directly to you (and
not as a single email pull request), I use quilt sendmail. Which will
append the "[PATCH 0/x]" before my cover message subject.

Should I work on changing this?
