Yes, monolithic patches are hard to manage, and it's not
effective to re-review from scratch a 10,000-line diff when
the incremental diff is say just 1/10 the size.

For that reason, I've been pulling from Dan's hg patch queue
on an irregular basis, and importing the result into a
git repository, putting each "pulled batch" on a new branch.
Then, I can compare one batch to another with a simple

    git diff t7..t8

If only I had pulled a little more frequently over the
last week or two.  My final incremental is summarized like this:

    $ git diff --shortstat t8..t9-public
     74 files changed, 2156 insertions(+), 9861 deletions(-)
