<patch-2.6.1 fails if patch contains DOS -line endings, like the ones 
you get from some crappy pastebin services or Trac's webservice

 >=patch-2.6.1 doesn't have this problem, and this is what developers 
are using anyway

so less breakage, no possibility of these things slipping by

consistent behavior

profit!
