suggest, moving your patch and trying out if it still applies to the
7.3 sources. In the best case, it will apply with some offset and in the
worst case you need to merge your changes manually. I would also
recommend, using mercurial or a git repo, as it is so much easier than
svn. In case you are deciding to use hg, look at the mq-extension,
that allows to use a patch queue that can be applied after you have
updated the source. Patching Vim is really easy then.
