It's almost there but there's a small problem: it outputs everything
in a single patch. That means if some patch is platform-specific (for
instance, only for Mac), the whole thing would fail.

Having individual patches was very useful because I used to do this to
apply qt-copy/patches to Qt commercial version:

  svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/qt-copy/patches patches-qtcopy
  for I in /c/path/to/patches-qtcopy/*.diff ; do patch -p0 -t < $I; done

By using -t to patch, patches which did not apply were skipped. I
cannot do that now unless I split the output of "git log -p
--no-merges v4.5.2" on ^"diff --git" or "commit ".

Is it possible to get the output split as individual patches directly from git ?
