Implementation. Should be fixed now, after rewriting part of it. ;-)

Of course. By the corner case I meant "the external patch tool invoked
by cg-patch emits bogus error in case of patch containing only mode

apply at all - actually, I was when I was writing the code, but
completely forgot about it later.
