AFAIK we will "create" new patches for new versions of a package by 
simply copying the old patch to a new file with just the packageVersion 
portion of the filename changed.  If this is not what has happened with 
some of the patches in the LFS repository then I don't know what to say 
really, aside from "sorry, I didn't review closely enough".  If you 
could point me to a categorical example of a patch that appears to be 
just a rediff (and such a rediff wasn't required to workaround a failed 
hunk) I'd appreciate it.
