Indeed, we could add the diff between 23.3a and 23.3b (about 65 kB
uncompressed) to our patchball. We'd still have to distribute the
problematic 23.3a tarball though, and mirror it ourselves, because
it's gone from GNU mirrors.

It would be too much to hope for a 23.3c tarball with timestamps
fixed, I suppose?

Yes, and maximum confusion for users as an added bonus. ;-)
