Soon after that I wrote bugzilla-tool (now called webkit-patch).  Adam
Barth and I learned that webkit-patch made it easy to just "save"
patches to bugs, using post and apply-attachment.  That was easier
than bothering with branches in many cases (at least branches
containing ChangeLogs).

It's even easier for me to avoid storing changelogs now that "upload"
prompts me to write them when I finally do post the patch.
