Looking for a fun sure-fire arch contribution?

Implement a --no-patch-log option to dopatch (and if you get that far,

This would ignore patch-log entries for the application (or generation)
of patchsets.  This would be especially handy for use in combination
with the --reverse flag to dopatch.

For example, if you want to revert the effect of patch-7, and commit the
resulting change, you'd like to do:

tla get-patch cat--branch--0--patch-7
tla dopatch --reverse cat--branch--0--patch-7.patches

But this also removes the patch-log entries for patch-7, which is
definitely not what you want.  Rather, you ought to be able to do:

tla dopatch --reverse --no-patch-log cat--branch--0-patch-7.patches

Uses for mkpatch --no-patch-log are left as an exercise for the reader.
