There is already one and if you're including a shell script you might as
well include "grep" in it to see if the patch is already credited (if
people return to originals they wouldn't remember to update the credits
file) or if it is an update (un which case instead of 'echo "Added toilet
patch 1.22 29/11/71" >> ../lib/text/credits' you'd put "Updated toilet
patch to 1.22...blah"

Not a good idea?

(in some other note, it could be done modifying the source and making
circlemud create a credits file by itself, so a patch would append to the
end of some ".h" file its info or something, or create the credits file on
the fly and have the patch create a toilet.add file in lib/etc/addins or
something, I dunno)
