Yes, the lack of support for the copied context (instead of the
unified context) diff format has bugged me over the years.  Reading
copied context diff format however is rapidly becoming a lost art,
unfortunately, partly due to our popularity, and the need for the
format has become a lessor issue.

I wonder if a pair of a pre-processor (on the input side, before
running 'git apply') and a post-processor (on the output side,
munging the output from 'git show/diff') would be sufficient.

In any case, I agree with you that it has nothing to do with what
Stefan is doing here.
