Patchlevels! Patchlevels! My kernel for patchlevels! :)

Why don't we start doing this:

 - Periodic bundling of bugfixes (and ONLY bugfixes) into context diffs
   suitable for 'patch'ing.
 - Press a patchlevel at that time, with both previous -> current and
   distribution -> current
 - Produce both a tarball (.tar.gz) and .zip of the patchlevel files
 - Shove 'em onto
 - Announce to <pick newsgroup here>

And yes, I'd be willing to do this sort of thing, I just need clear
indicators of feature addition vs. bugfix - it's sometimes a wee bit

       Of all the things I've lost, I think I miss my mind the most.
