No, the documentation needs to be fixed, everything else would break
backwards compatibility.

In general, you probably should use nested <include> and <exclude>
elements instead of lists - and in the case of directories with spaces
you don't have a choice anyway.

Search for "diff" - if you are on a Unix(like) system it will probably
already be there.

cp patternset.html patternset.html.orig
vi patternset.html 
# make your changes
diff -u patternset.html.orig patternset.html > patternset.patch
# send patternset.patch to list

I'm sure there is a diff implementation for Windows as well.
