+1 for most of the "series" TODO items. Several of the other items have
been tripping points for me too. And I know that there are other users
who would appreciate thread-based / series-based handling of patches
("bundles" don't really cut it in their current form).

Some of your series- and message-ID-related comments remind me of this
report I made, which highlights another problem with the existing
fuzziness in Patchwork:


Anyway, thanks for the work so far. Maybe I'll set up my own Patchwork
instance and give some of your code a run.
