I use webmail (mostly due to namely calendar integration, quick search of all email, easy access anywhere, etc), which makes this difficult.  So I probably would need to tag and/or move the mail messages w/ the patches to an IMAP folder, and then have the fetchmail + apply + etc on the script which I'd run from a git checkout.

I wouldn't mind take a look to your script.
