Except those patches contain no VCS-specific data, like the author.
In relation to licencing issues, I think it's especially interesting
to have the ability to cherry-pick and keep the original committer
info unchanged. I'd say what we really want is a way to cherry-pick
between different VCS, and a higher-level wrapper on top of all VCS
implementing a generic, cross-distro workflow.
