When I do simple bugfixes of library code, I'll often work from my
"live" Python environment, patch it in place, test and generate a
patch with diff. Very primitive, but surprisingly effective.

Having said that, I don't think it's the end of the world if such
patches couldn't use Reitveld. They are probably small enough that it
would be overkill anyway.
