  Depends, when approving a patch, and if it's small (one page or so)
I tend to just ACK at the end, it allows to see the context. But if
it's more than one page, I don't like that too much. Basically I think
that one should see some input from the replier on any page displayed,
otherwise it's just lost time and space.
