Using abbreviated syntax here.  Given:

 /                                      \
p5--commit--p6(bad)--commit--p7--commit  p8--commit--p9
               \             /                       /
                \---delta---/                       /

Would this work for a non-bad patch-7?  Tag patch-5 back in as patch-8,
commit, and then apply-delta patch-6-through-patch-7 as patch 9?

If it would work what is the proper way to find a patch's immediate ancestor
and descendent?
