Invoking ed as `ed - filename', as GNU patch does for ed-style patches, fails with exit status 2 in ed-0.3-pre[12].

This non-standard way of invoking ed has been discontinued in ed-0.3. Use `ed -s filename' instead.

In my opinion, GNU patch should be changed to use the standard option `-s'. Please, can someone tell GNU patch maintainer about this? I'll be offline the next days. Thanks.
