Possibly, but I often get whole modules attached to issues in contrib. 
Such a tool would at least put an end to that. I also get many "If you 
add this after line 12345...." issues. Often times, in both cases, the 
person (arguably with minimal coding skills) has actually identified 
(and corrected) a real problem. Reviewing and applying patches instead 
of dealing with the cases I mentioned would be easier. Anyway, it would 
be cool to build and see what happens. I don't have time to do it.
