Hi list,

When modifying patch files, i'm getting a bit sick of counting lines just
so I can modify hunk sizes to correctly apply a patch.

Then I noticed at the bottom of the man page for "patch":

  "Paul Eggert removed patchÂ’s arbitrary limits"

Has that statement got anything to do with arbitrary hunk sizes? If so,
could this be reinstated but only turned on with a flag e.g. "-a or
--abitrary-size"
