[wp-hackers] Update to x Patches

I know Mark Jaquith made those changed files packages for the last two
releases of WordPress. I was wondering on how people would think if it were
an official package released along side of the release? If you have seen
phpBB, you know what I'm talking about. They have a changed file release
that you can download for modded out boards. I figure it would be easier to
be a part of the official announcements and it should be available on the
download page instead of be announced on the list.

I don't know if this would want to be started with 2.1 or not. It would be
incremental. Like if there was 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 released, there should be a
patch for 2.1 to 2.1.2 and a patch from 2.1.1 to 2.1.2. It would be easier
than having to different packages or even more depending on how far behind
the person is on updating. I still see WP blogs on ZDnet and elsewhere with
1.5 and 1.3 installed! These diffs could be easily made with subversion and
then just zip'd and/or tar'd.
