Not really. When you render the book, and then make the tarballs, just
keep a backup of the tarball. Then have a makefile target for backup
that checks out a new website copy, extract the tarballs to their needed
location, and run only the part of the render that looks for the patches
and creates the links.


Government is actually the worst failure of civilized man. There has
never been a really good one, and even those that are most tolerable are
arbitrary, cruel, grasping and unintelligent.
