    BTW, to save bandwidth and whitespace mishaps we could send patches as
    scripts, just like Al Viro did once-upon-a-time.

    Applied to plain 2.5.59, diffstat reports this for the 871-line diff:
    63 files changed, 77 insertions(+), 77 deletions(-)


    find . -name "*" | xargs grep -l definat | awk '{print "ex - ",$1," -c \"%s/definat/definit/g|x\""}' | sh
    find . -name "*" | xargs grep -l seperat | awk '{print "ex - ",$1," -c \"%s/seperat/separat/g|x\""}' | sh
