I prefer 1 or 3 for the following reasons:

- It keeps the patch tightly coupled to the Jira issue
- If the patch isn't quite right, a new one can be uploaded and the old 
one removed. One problem with posting patches to derby-dev is it can be 
difficult to know if you've seen all the patches for a thread and have 
the "right" one.
