And why is this important? Is the permanent storage of patches going
to use up all your disk? I imagine that only very, *very* few people
are watching disk space so closely.

Maybe it would matter if 'shelved' patches are all huge multi-
gigabyte changes to large binary files, but that seems like an
extreme edge-case. It sounds like the feature is meant for code
patches.
