This answer is also for Alfie, who ask similar question.
Answer is: no. I've no times to implement and mantains a patch
system by hand.

I add and remove files randomly in the tree/ directory. To automatize
that is a little complex, but possible.

A possible scenario: to add a new switch (-p ?) to "mu" script.
mu -p compare, file-to-file, the tree/ content with the previous
mulinux-VERSION.tgz (or user supplied), and produce a sort of
archive/patch able to do the dirty work in a installed system.

A sort of revolution in muLinux!


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
