The only program I know to do such patches is ResCompare and considering
the way it works, the patch would include the whole Works package as well.

Maybe distributing the sources for a combined package is the best solution.
I don't think it is worth doing a program (on Mac & Win32) to do the
manipulation.... but if someone wants to do it, please.
