Hmm.  I don't know if this helps, but I use the scripts in
which I have bound to some shortcuts in my text editor.

This has the advantage of breaking up the bundle into visually
distinct patches, which I feel makes the review easier to follow

I could have sworn that I had already reviewed and applied this in the
past.  I'll look through it again later and update you on this.

Without thinking too deeply about it, I suspect the idea is that this
canonisation lets you merge together patches from different records
(since you can rollback more than one patch).

Yep.  I'll mark issue1255 as resolved.

I've applied the rest of your patches thanks to your review.
