    My preference would be to only add the "---" line
    when starting with a brand new, empty patch file.

    If an existing version of the patch file exists,
    then just copy over the entire header (up to the
    first actual patch) as is, no change. If I choose
    to edit the patch file header and remove the "---"
    line, or do any other edit to it (short of creating
    a line that looks like the start of a patch) then
    quilt should respect that.

    The following patch seems to accomplish this.
