Thanks, I didn't know that. I just assumed that it used the index
or generally depended on being run in a git repository.

The patch program does one thing that git-apply does not --
it can check out the files to be patched (for systems that need
it, such as Clearcase or RCS). I will have to handle that myself
(but that is not hard, I can either use 'git diff --name-only' to find
out the file names or extract the names from the patch itself).
