I thought about it but I did not think of a reason why.  If we do
not store the patch-id (it would be a misnomer especially after this
series, it is mor like patch signature), and we generate the patch
to be hashed internally without getting affected by any user input
given per-invocation, then nothing is externally observable even if
we used two completely different definition of patch id computation,
and I think these preconditions do hold.
