Almost there. :-)

What you want is to have the "cover letter" be "0/N".  A couple of
ways to do this; one simple way is like this:

git format-patch --subject-prefix="OPW PATCH vX" --cover-letter
$EDITOR 0000-cover-letter.patch
git send-email *.patch

Another is something like this:

git send-email --subject-prefix="OPW PATCH vX" --cover-letter --annotate

The second way is more compact and doesn't make a bunch of files that
you then have to deal with; but it does mean opening the editor for
each of the patches as well as the cover letter.

Normally I also keep a copy of the text of the cover letter around
somewhere else so you can cut-and-paste instead of having to type in a
new one every time.

For something that git users do so much, this is strangely complicated...
