I'd only like to see following additional changes:

- make the script callable from an arbitrary directory, i.e.,
   make the file name of the patches relative to the script, and

- mention to adjust MANPATH (because that also works with the

... and we need to make
   sc_prohibit_tab_based_indentation and
happy again.

(BTW: The latter would alternatively be fixed if the patches would
be named *.diff instead of *.patch.)

Thanks again for the review and improvements.

Pushed here with your suggestions (+ very minor script changes):


We can still add a new web page (echoing the README.older-versions)
to the coreutils website, to ease finding this information via a search engine - WDYT ?
