OK, I understand.

If he hadn't, I might not have actually started this whole escapade - GnuCash 
was (is) too daunting as a single unit.

Let me rephrase it:

The code that will be synced will contain the solution to the original problem 
but the code itself is to be reorganised and modified such that the original 
patch would not have worked - but the *effect* of the patch will be retained. 
(In this case because it's already been implemented in one tree.)

So I'm not actually losing the effect of the patch, just re-patching it to fit 
with the new code.

It was also proving difficult to keep up with the frequent patches and 
rebuilds. I'm going to have to change the way I deal with the gnucash CVS. I 
have been using my own CVS repository and importing each checkout into that 
tree along with my own changes. Whilst useful, it is proving too complex to 
keep operating with so many GnuCash changes, especially when I'm not usually 
working within the GnuCash tree myself.
