This is definitely a nice feature to have. For now, I put in the other
addresses as Cc when creating the patch using `git format-patch'. Should
we build this feature into `mumi send-email' or should we create a
separate `mumi format-patch' command that will create a patch with the
correct Cc and with other necessary options passed to `git
format-patch'? The other necessary options (think options like `-1 -a
--base=auto' as recommended in the Guix manual at "(guix) Sending a
Patch Series") could be configured in .mumi/config allowing different
projects using mumi to recommend different options.

Either way, patches to mumi are always welcome! ;-)
