Epic Fail. You did not read my question. I would be more inclined to be
thankful for your help if you weren't being so arrogant. If you are annoyed
at helping people (and if that much is obvious in your responses), then you
should not be helping at all. You do nothing more than upset people.

Anyway, back on topic. My question was not specific to how to make a patch
in general, as I already know how to do that. If you read what I originally
posted, my question was in regards to *applying* the patch. More
specifically, applying the same patch to multiple (different) working
copies. Each working copy will not point to the same location in the
repository. From my investigation so far this does not seem to be possible.
I would appreciate some clarification on the matter, though.
