I am afraid, I have no clue about Lisp at all (SICP is still lying on my
bed table, but I am afraid it is used mostly as sleeping pills ;)). I
have come to this problem while writing my own module for vim
(http://gitorious.org/vim-diff_navigator/).

While working with Fedora (and RHEL) packages I work a lot with patches,
and it is often much more easy to actually edit patches (which are of
course correct ones) than to apply all patches and regenerate patches.
And quilt doesn't help everytime completely.

And of course, we have --fuzz=0 everywhere in Fedora (and RHEL).

So, yes, I understand where you are coming from, but I have a bit
different use case.

OTOH, my script in the worst case doesn't make things worse.

Best,
