Good first attempt at a naive implementation ;-)
There are a few problems :
It doesn't appear to handle removed/added directories. (patch(1)
automatically deletes dirs when all files in them have been
removed by a patch. Recursively.)
It doesn't check the exit status of patch(1).
It will erroneously add *.{orig,rej} files.
