I'm fine with this patch.

But I'd also like to point out (again) that I don't like the fact that
"patch" implements its own editor. Because that duplicates a lot of code,
and it's hard to maintain in the long term.

E.g. it's not clear to me yet whether the patch editor should be caring
about tree conflicts, for example, which the update and merge editors do.

Maybe patch should somehow re-use the merge editor.
I've been told this is impossible with the current API.

Anyway I think we should solve this problem before the patch feature
gets released. So I hope that the code you're patching will be obsoleted
eventually. But maybe that's just me :)
