I'm using git v1.4.4.4, and trying to use directly git-send-email on plain 

bug #1 (default values when prompting do not work)

According to git-send-email documentation, it should suggest default values 
when prompting the user.

However it does not, since ->readline does not accept a default value.

I've verified this in man Term\:\:ReadLine and by looking 
at /usr/share/perl/5.8.7/Term/, and with the perl debugger - the 
default is correctly calculated but not printed. At least with my perl 
(5.8.7, from up-to-date Ubuntu 6.06 LTS).

git-send-email should instead say "press Enter for default [$default]" and 
behave correspondingly.

bug #2 (subject line is cut away but ignored)

Additionally, I was sending a patch starting with (on 1st line):

Kconfig: FAULT_INJECTION can be selected only if LOCKDEP is enabled.

'Kconfig:' is interpreted as a mbox parameter, and ignored, and that line is 
removed from the email.

This should be documented and pitfall, and probably the user should be allowed 
to override that.

Inform me of my mistakes, so I can add them to my list!
