wait a minute. that's not what i've understood all this time as the
rationale for a multi-part patch -- to show dependency. certainly,
that's not what you read in "SubmittingPatches":

"If one patch depends on another patch in order for a change to be
complete, that is OK. Simply note "this patch depends on patch X" in
your patch description."

that doesn't say anything about using the multi-part notation. are
you sure about this?
