I think it would be good if mkpatches declined to update patchfiles if
they weren't actually meaningfully different, at least by default.  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?
