If you want to dig around in the boiler room:

There's many reasons why apply_changeset should sometimes _not_ do
anything under the patch log.

There but for for a s/!/foo == / goes a modification to changeset

changes.  From there, it can be floated to various CLIs of which "add
patch log" would be a trivial example.
