+From the original author: because I'm bad at programming and a bit lazy, the original patch had a few bugs in it.
+Each bugfix has its own diff file. This way, if you have installed an earlier version, you can run `diff` on your old patch and the new one.
+This provides an easy way for someone to see the changes and apply the updates themselves.
+If you have not installed an old patch, using the latest version is obviously recommended.
