Personally I tend to use feature branches in git that I rebase on the top of 
Alexandre's tree. Simply starting gitk will show me which of my patches have 
been accepted and which of them are still on top of the tree. Of course that 
means I need to track which of those I sent.

Using more branches, this is even more clear.

Assume you have two git branches, 'submitted' and 'my-cool-feature'

You develop in 'my-cool-feature'. Once a patch is ready to be committed, you 
git-cherry-pick it to the 'submitted' branch, git-format-patch | 
git-imap-send or whatever you do to send it to wine-patches. Now you can keep 
track of your submitted patches easily.

A web interface can be nice, so if anyone feels like hacking this up I'm 
definitely not going to stop them. All I want to say is that I think it's not 
needed for personal use.
