Well, it initially happened like this, because I wanted to merge back
multiple changes back to releng/8 with re@'s approval. re@ required diff
files to include commit messages and proper mergeinfo.

Because I can't think of a way to prepare a larger set of patches that
include proper mergeinfo without constantly reverting back and forth or
keeping track of multiple 1.2 GB checkouts, I eventually just decided to
create a bigger patch, so it was more an exception than a routine.

Reverting patches shouldn't be a problem, because I could always just
svn merge -c -123456 to revert individual commits.
