We're getting well into programming 101 and I should just shut up, but

cat > mkpatches <<EOF

bk prs -hr"$1".. | while read x
do bk export -tpatch -r$x > /tmp/patches/patch-$x

Yes, I believe you need cat and a Bourne compatible shell for the <<EOF
stuff and we really don't need a listing of all the shells in which this
will and will not work.

The point, which seems to be completely lost in the "I can program in
shell better than you" discussion, is that it is trivial to export
changes from BK as patches. Given that the world turns on patches
today, that should be the end of the discussion and insofar as I am
concerned, it is the end of the discussion.
