OK how about this?

Minimal changes in send-email.perl and no duplication in
_git_send_email(). I could do $(git format-patch
--git-completion-helper) directly from _git_send_email() too but we
lose caching.

Subject: [PATCH] completion: use __gitcomp_builtin for format-patch

This helps format-patch gain completion for a couple new options,
notably --range-diff.

Since send-email completion relies on $__git_format_patch_options
which is now reduced, we need to do something not to regress
send-email completion.

The workaround here is implement --git-completion-helper in
send-email.perl just as a bridge to "format-patch --git-completion-helper".
This is enough to use __gitcomp_builtin on send-email (to take
advantage of caching).

In the end, send-email.perl can probably reuse the same info it passes
to GetOptions() to generate full --git-completion-helper output so
that we don't need to keep track of its options in git-completion.bash
anymore. But that's something for another boring day.
