I think a more useful approach is to try to handle any patch which you
understand well enough to feel it's about right.  (The cracks between
the areas of our interest are too wide to only handle those within the
areas.)  That still would leave a lot of doubt about whether a patch
could do any harm in some other place or use case; I wonder if we
could come up with some procedure to minimize that chance.
