In the past, we've applied patches on top of patches when they've been out for 
some time. If its recent, like within a week, we've corrected patches since 
there's not much that is counting on it being a certain way. An example, 
we've got 2 patches against Dustin's patch that adds contexts to syscall 
records.

Under normal circumstances this normally isn't a problem. Right now we have a 
5 month backlog of patches that haven't gone upstream. That represents about 
17-20 individual patches. Each patch added makes it more and more fragile to 
changes that upstream is making.

The functionality that you just added, the audit client, really does stand on 
its own. I don't think you need to merge it with the string2 patch.
