That's one patch per file; you've misread. (But we do have ordering;
patches are applied in alphabetical order.)

I would really like to see one patch file per changeset instead of one
patch file per source file, with support for quilt or whatnot to help
manage them. But that's a big chunk of work that I don't have time to
do myself...
