Maybe add an option:  --assume={yes,no}

So that would probably be --batch but while skipping patches which appear
to be applied already.

That could be implemented, but I would not recommend using such a feature.

For my particular application, I am wanting a three outcome decision:

1.  apply the patch completely
2.  the patch is a complete reverse, so ignore it
3.  apply the forward parts of the patch, put the rest into .rej files
    and then stop and intervene manually.

I'll try parsing the --dry-run output and see if that gets me where
I want to go, but I still don't see a way to specify "forward only"
in batch mode.  Yes, "--batch=forward", "--batch=reverse" and
"--batch=abort" would be nice, but I was trying to do and suggest
something fairly simple.

Thank you for your help and suggestions!
