I find it annoying when I run mkpatches and e.g. see 12 .orig files, when examination shows that really there's just the new patch I added and 3 that were defuzzed, with 8 unchanged. I guess this comes down to suggesting that mkpatches be "mkpatches; patchdiff". Does anyone ever want to not have this behavior?
