[PATCH git-send-email.io] Add section about git format-patch

Patch: +12 -0

When going through git-send-email.io to teach a coworker, the biggest
missing piece was any mention of format-patch.  I find that format-patch
and then send-email is a much smoother workflow when annotating or sending
multiple patches.  I don't want to make the decision one way or another
for someone new to send-email, but I do think that they should be made
aware of format-patch.

I'm not subscribed to the list, please cc me in any replies.

              Use <code>git format-patch</code> to create patch files without
              sending them. This can be useful if you want to make changes
              to some of the patches instead of opening your editor for
              every single one the way <code>--annotate</code> does.

NACK, the purpose is to streamline the process. format-patch may be good
for you but I wouldn't introduce it to beginners given how intimidated
most people already are by this tool.
