Old habit, I guess. :) I tend to find that having multiple patches aids
reviewing. Within reason, obviously. Reviewers don't have to go "I agree
with everything except that particular hunk", but can just say "I agree
with everything except patch two", making tracking things a bit easier.

Similarly, if the patches are all independent (albeit being about the
same topic) and it comes up that a particular patch is not such a good
idea after all because reasons, Junio could just decide to apply a
subset and leave the rest. In this case, the commit message of the third
patch assumes that the first two have already been applied, so they're
not completely independent, but that's about the only interdependency
there is in these.

I'm happy to go either way.
