Indeed that does seem like a lot of effort to do properly and
completely. Though to simply mark any individual patch as 'already
applied to the tree' vs not applied isn't so difficult.
Alexandre do you see any value in this bit of functionality? It is a
very small bit of what real 'patch tracking' should be but not so hard
to implement given the infrastructure Dan has already set up. If Dan
doesn't wish to implement it but Alexandre and others may perceive
value from it I will go for it.
