I beg to differ: you faced a quite unusual situation which is unlikely
to happen to other users--let alone those who spend their time writing
tutorials. And tutorials are written for people having little to none
knowledge about the topic so they naturally tend to discuss ubiquitous
use cases, in simple terms, and possibly referring to as little Git
tools as possible.
You referred to Subversion here for some reason... do you care to
sketch how would you accomplish the same task with it (and don't forget
that subversion grew `svn patch` command only in version 1.7 which came
just a couple of days ago). But OK, I think what would be really
useful in this case is you writing a blog post with detailed
description of your problem and the solution to it so that the next guy
could google it (or we could send it straight to your post).
