Unfortunately, this won't fly as we rely on file timestamps to tell us
which files have changed.

Tom's idea of making a temp copy of the repo and patching that would work,
but if you're going to do that why do a vpath build anyway?

Regarding the idea of a list of approved patch authorisers, don't we have
such a group now? i.e. "committers".
