Last year, another students group (Tom Russelo, Samuel Groot)
supervised by Matthieu Moy were working on git.
There goal was to create the --quote-mail=<file> option for git
send-email, this option permit to quote an email in the same cover letter.
All the metadata ("Cc", "Subject", ...) will be automatically filled.

For now the code contains a syntax error then our obvious first
goal is to fix it.
