I don't know it, thus I've some questions to know it better:
1) Can simple-patchsys be used without cdbs? I'm a happy (rather newbie)
   cdbs user in other packages, but I don't think it would be suitable
   for the vim packaing ... (or not? what's your opinion?)
2) Is there a way in simple-patchsys to edit a patch? What's wonderful
   with dpatch is indeed dpatch-edit-patch that let you edit a patch.
   You run it and you will get a fresh dir in which you can change
   whatever you want and your changes will be integrated with the patch
   you're editing upon shell closure.

Thanks for your info.
