"git format-patch" does it without send-email, but I see that send-email
will then parse its output, and would turn any capitalization into the
"Message-Id" form again.

We could probably just have it preserve whatever capitalization it finds
if there's an existing header, we wouldn't fix anything, but we'd move
the blame around a bit :)
