Toward binpatch (was Re: multiple DESTDIRs)
The original subject was confusing. What I meant here is binpatch. Think
we'll find a critical bug just after releasing NetBSD 6.0. Think it's one
line change in source code. It'd be nice if we release the patch as a binary
(archive). Better if it's a binpatch.
Having multiple DESTDIRs is not the goal; it's one of solutions. An obvious
idea would be use a VCS to version DESTDIR. But I think it's a bit overkill.

Because I want to know how releng builds their binpatches (if they do).
Because I don't want releng to do it manually. Because many NetBSD users do
their own release engineering too. Both administrators & embedded developers.
Sharing a standard way would be a big win.
