I think that it would be enough.

Would it make sense to introduce very basic templating for --subject ?
I'm thinking of a --template "%count% (stable) %subject%" which would expand to:
[PATCH] (stable) patch doing a and b
for single patches, and for series:
[PATCH 0 of n] (stable) serie summary
[PATCH i of n] (stable) first line of commit message of patch i
This way, we could have a simple alias in our .hgrc:
emailstable = email -t mercurial-devel at selenic.com --template
"%count% (stable) %subject%"
