Ok, well obviously `mkpatch' could implement these options as well, and
it would be a useful optimization for large trees with zillions of
patch-logs.  Commands that both produce and use (or just produce) the
changeset could pass these options to mkpatch.

For cases where you've already got a changeset though, `dopatch' should
support them too ("editing the changeset" seems much messier; I presume
in fai you were trying to avoid changing primitives too much).

Saa, shall we dance?  (from a dance-class advertisement)
