I'm working on implementing patch(1). I'm thinking about
introducing an extension to the standard: -w. When this
flag is used, patch will verify that the patchfile only
changes whitespace in the file.

So I have 2 question.

1) Do you think this should be a flag or a separate tool?

2) Should it be able to do a dry run, would be another flag
   that can be used independently of -w?
