Note that if you are using the MokoMakefile, it will forcibly revert
your changes the next time you run "make update".  This is a feature
intended to make sure that any local patches applied are reverted before
pulling down new stuff from the svn repo, thereby ensuring that you are
building what the core team is building.

If you want to introduce patches into a MokoMakefile build, you can use
quilt in the normal way.  The patches get stored in the patches
directory, and these are not reverted (they are unapplied and then
reapplied by quilt each time you do a "make update").
