I like the idea of being able to look at the diff chunks that didn't
succeed without too much fuss. For example, if I found the correct
target, I would like to just apply the diff to that file. If the
"missing" chunks are still in the middle of a large patch, that gets a
bit cumbersome. If there's a file with the diff chunks, bam, done!
