> From where? patch, configure or build?
 From whatever :)

My personal need is the following :

. Let say I do work on a package with a large amount of sources (For 
example Firefox... ;) )
. I run a compile then choose to change some options in the Makefile 
used by GAR
. I would like to do a "make clean and reconfigure" with the lowest 
overhead possible.

Actually this process may take some time to make clean, download the 
sources again, and extract sources. It may be a question of hour for 
Firefox, Thunderbird or Eclipse. So any solution that may help to reduce 
this time would be great.

Most of the time i need this after a build, successful or not.

>   work/pristine-<mod>   Pristine, unpatched sources
>   work/patched-<mod>    Patched sources
>   work/build-<mod>      Patches sources that will be worked on
I do really like this !

Many times i have been making cp foo.c foo.c.orig in my working folder.
