Taking a step back:  is there really anything wrong with such commits?  Given that drdr and e-mail alerts are based on pushes rather than commits, it seems not unreasonable to just let those be intermediate commits.  I can see that it's a bit easier to give a nice name to a single big commit, but if the alternative is the fancy dance that this thread is suggesting, it seems like it might be simpler just to go with the simple solution (tautology alert).
