BTW, there is some regression in Ediff.

Running `ediff-patch-file' in a buffer with the patch used to propose
the name of the current buffer by default, but now it proposes some
irrelevant buffer name.

This bug can be reproduced by opening the initial David's message with the
patch in this thread and typing `M-x ediff-patch-file'.  To the question
"Is the patch already in a buffer" type `y'.  After that in the prompt
"Buffer that holds the patch" it provides some other buffer by default.
It used to provide the current buffer by default.

Maybe the reason is that Ediff recognizes buffers with patches only
in the CVS format?  In this case Ediff should be fixed to support
other formats since we are switching from CVS now.
