Pushing a 100K patch is a 100K patch, whether it is done in one chunk or
100 smaller incrementell patches. Just because review for the former as
a single chunk is a bit more complicated doesn't mean that reviewing the
latter is attractive. Let's face it -- noone likes to review that much
code in one go. There is also nothing stopping you from building smaller
incrementell patches with other tools. It's been done before the
invention of git after all.
