I don't believe it can be both in a comment and at the beginning of a
line, since the spec file format does not have block comments.  I
could not find a single match that wasn't the direct application of a
patch.  If you have evidence to the contrary, I invite you to
enlighten me.

As I said, I am looking at a current CVS checkout.  However, if you
just count the patch files, you may be counting some that aren't
applied in the current .spec, such as
linux-2.6-debug-detect-softlockups.patch, which appears in a current
CVS checkout and in the SRPM but is not actually applied by the
current spec.

Anyway, it's a trivial matter so I apologize for spamming.  But I
relly did try to engage my brain before posting, and I do have at
least a bit of experience doing this.
