Well, I guess the question is: what is a "patch"? Apple recently released
what amounts of a patch (being a personal computer company, they don't use
that exact word) to the Macintosh operating system that's twenty megabytes

at the same time." There threfore cannot be more than one patch per

At any rate, I suppose that's a minor nit. The files can always be
