I don't *mind*, there's just a chance I won't notice a patch that
appears in the middle of a thread which submitters tend to mind - the
issue is that I'm blissfully unaware. It was more that you were doing
the exact same thing again in response to it being explicitly identified
as an issue.

Not everyone has a process which causes issues here (and even for me I'd
only notice if the old thread was still in my inbox), but I certainly
wouldn't be against it. Note that if you're trying to make everything
super rules based you also need to cover the case of people trying to
incrementally fix a series by sending new versions of patches in the
middle of it which is an even worse mess.
