I agree that it would be useful to have some or all of the book editors
able to apply patches.  If there's a script that is available that will
check the headers (at least for a close match to the patches project
requirements) then that'll make it easier to ensure we don't bring down
the standards of Tushars' and Jims' fine work.

The only thing I would say is that LFS editors should not commit
none-LFS package related patches to the patches project.  We don't want
to tread on anyone's toes here (or at least I don't!).

J, don't add folks to the svnpatches group yet - we'll wait for a final
OK from Tush then proceed with it.
