What I would do here (I think, but it's not easy to say from outside), if 
the need for a quick on-site fix arises, would be to do a quick git-init 
add their source code, do the quick fixes, and then bring the fixes home in 
shape of patch-files.

Perhaps, but git archive is safer, faster and easier.

OK, but it does sound a wee bit complicated. Whatever floats your boat :)
