How would that enable the original version of a file to be reinstated
for a patch in which it had not yet been changed? It seems to me that a
binary patch, which can be reversed, would support this much better.
Unfortunately, as far as I know, loki_patch doesn't support this
option. The other obvious advantage is that, to a certain point,
cumulative diff patches are much smaller and so download quicker.

Just run loki_update and it'll do all the updates automatically. No
need to hunt down the files and install them manually at all. I would
have thought you'd remember that! :-P
