Umm... Real, hard RC bugs will be present on more than one release of
the same upstream code. Or are sometimes triggered by combinations of
installed programs. So, while what you say is mostly true (it would
be easier to share patches if they all applied at the precise same
spot), I think the argument is a wee bit pulled too hard.
