Also adding to this, I remember on IRC some people worrying that this
might be tricky with file/directory renames, and Taylor R Campbell
pointing out that a conservative estimate would be good enough.

I think that this means is putting into the map any patch which *might*
touch a file, but doesn't necessarily do so.  Anyway, in case anybody
was worried about this being tricky, please keep in mind other simple
options, such as the one I think Taylor suggested.
