Your wish is my command :)
I'll see what I can do this afternoon.

It needs to be there, but I don't know if it NEEDS to be there. Some  
historical code in l3doc (\includeltpatch) contains \input{l3vers.dtx}  
in order to check the distribution date against a (nonexistent so far)  
patch file.

Without knowing how the team has dealt with these patch files in the  
past, nor whether we'll use them again in the future, I've just left  
the code as is. But at this stage it's not being used.
