   Exactly, thus git format-patch.

No, git send-mail accepts multiple inputs -- and it is not guaranteed
that the input is from format-patch in any shape or form.  From the
man page:

       There are two formats accepted for patch files:

        1. mbox format files

           This is what git-format-patch(1) generates. Most headers and MIME
           formatting are ignored.

        2. The original format used by Greg Kroah-Hartman's
           send_lots_of_email.pl script

           This format expects the first line of the file to contain the "Cc:"
           value and the "Subject:" of the message as the second line.
