My point was that very few programmers, including the seasoned toolsmiths
who read this list, know and regularly use all of the tools at their
disposal.  Yes, some of the tools I listed are nearly worthless (or at
least have better alternatives).  And in my world, "patch" also falls
into that category.  (I don't know why Greg seems to have a problem with
this fact.)

Nevertheless, judging from the various responses (including the rather
abusive one I received from Greg in private), it would seem my point
has been made.
