The default subject is the first line of the log message, with [...] at the end if the log message has several lines. Then the full log message is printed on top of the email body.

I have seen two kinds of log message usage : people who always put a few words, and those who copy/paste a whole changelog slice. I've get used to use the first line to sum up the commit in a few concise words. Then develop in the following lines if needed. It makes very nice report.

I can add an option to limit the subject size, although I'd rather be sure if it can't be solve by the mail client (they almost all handle overlong subject gracefully).

(installation details: gna!)

The subject line take the full commit log message, or at least the whole first line. There should be limit of words, because it is not unusual to type the whole info on one line.
