I do. That's how I review patches.

Only half true. It works with bzr, git, etc... What only works with CVS
is the "# lines for context" feature.

No idea which module you are talking about. Linux distros have
PatchReader available and it's working fine.

What do they require as dependencies or configuration?

>   Can we tear out the docs (and the code)?

No reason for now. It currently has no replacement implemented upstream.
