As a general rule probably not. I did examine the result of the patched files and verified they
looked OK. I guess I could cp'ed the files that were affected, then applied the patch by hand then ran gendiff against the
new and the old to get a new patch, but in the end it is the same thing, other than having to turn on with_fuzzy_patches.
