Was that written by the authors of espdiff? (apt-get install patchutils) :

       espdiff - apply the appropriate transformation to a set of patches

       espdiff  applies  the  appropriate  transformation to a patch or set of
       patches, depending on what you intend to accomplish.

       The input patches must be ``clean'': in other  words  they  must  apply
       without  fuzz  or  offsets  in whichever order they are meant to be ap-
       plied. The exception is if you intend espdiff to  clean  them  for  you
       (good luck).

       You may find it useful to cross your fingers while the program performs
       its task, or to screw your eyes tight shut while imagining it doing the
       right thing.


       Do  not  use this program while sleep-walking, or before your first cup
       of coffee.
