If that's possible, then it's a bug. But I don't see how that can happen
-- do you have an example how to do this kind of edits that don't reset
the ok_to_apply flag?

The work scales linearly with the size of the diff to SVN, so it's not
extremely bad. Of course, it's a bit of a work to go through hundreds of
potential docstrings in one sitting.
