Hey David, you're right I went this way. For two reasons. First, I
seem to recall someone -- was it you? -- mentioned on #svn-dev that
/usr/bin/patch wasn't going to be a great choice for win-box folks.
Second, it's fine -- for now -- to use an external tool to apply the
(svn)patch. Definitely, I think we have to talk further about this
point. Are we going to implement our own unidiff parser? I don't
know yet, but we may want to reach consensus here before we take a --
rather decisive -- decision. So yeah, I will update docstrings.

BTW, sorry that a few of my commits were rather large; I wish I had
sent little chunks every now and then so that code-review was a lot
easier.

Oh, and have fun with your thesis. (Luck has nothing to do with these
kinda things, right? :-)

Charles
