This is just a comment on the #leftoverbits: I've looked at this option
parsing in "git-send-email" before, and IMO the right long-term fix is
to split out the *.perl code into a "git send-email--helper", and do the
option parsing in C using our parse_options().

Some of it will be a bit of a hassle, but it should be much easier after
8de2e2e41b2 (Merge branch 'ab/send-email-optim', 2021-07-22) (and the
subsquent regression fix).
