Unless there's any reason to do it a different way, I'd vote for:

"Tell us where to look to get a pre-dmcbride-patch version, let somebody
provide a new patch against that, and once that's considered good revert
his patch and introduce the new one."

Although I'd be somewhat averse to allowing his patch to escape blead if
we can possibly avoid it.
