I intended to have the utility that extracted the source package invoke patch
automaticaly with the DELTA file as input. If you need an arbitrarily 
complicated "patch" run, you can have the extraction script do that instead
of having the DELTA component be a script as well. If you want DELTA to be
a no-op, make it empty.
