Yeah, I've thought about that too.  If I just extracted pieces from the 
original patchset blindly, it'd be easy: apply the extracted patches to one 
copy, apply the original massive patch to another copy, and then use diff to 
see what was left over.  But I'm not taking the changes blindly, so my posted 
extractions don't match exactly the original.

So I have a simple, low-tech solution - a file that records what's left over.  
Here it is:

This file just tracks what's left in the "diff" file that hasn't been applied 
yet.  It doesn't include the test cases, just the test number (that's enough to 
show what's not done).  The patch also includes a complete rewrite of tccpe.c, 
which I'm not trying to track.  I plan to edit it as I (and others I hope!) 
extract goodies from it.  Not high-tech, but "works for me".
