  I like the idea too, except for the perl part, does it make it
mandatory to have perl to build now (the remote generator may have
pushed that dependancy already though).
  I would actually put patch 4 first since it's a no-op and then patch
3 since it depends on 4 for the genration (but it's a detail).
  Checking the full patch 4 seems hard did you just diff the current
version and generated one (I would guess so) ? If yes ACK from me after
checking builds as Eric suggests,
