I could rewrite that code in patch to do what we want, if we are willing
to distribute our own version of patch.

It actually sets a stupid flag in the code named "skip_rest_of_patch".
It's about a 10 line change, maximum (Theoretically a 1 line change, but
there might be other stupidity down the line).

It was at this point I started looking around for an internal diff/patch
