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
application that would allow either ignoring or doing only patch-log
changes.  From there, it can be floated to various CLIs of which "add
patch log" would be a trivial example.

Yeah.  I've been trying to figure out whether what's desirable is
1. doing it specifically for patch logs
2. doing it for files that match the exclude regexp
3. some other kind of criteria

The problem with the exclude regexp is that it's intended for user convenience, not program correctness. The other problem is that it would work in the common case. :-)
