Actually I would not attempt that at all!!!!

If code is messy, just think how many rej's he will have for each upgrade!
After installing many cvs's of George's, I began hating rej's and just did
it all by hand to save headaches.

Best do make a diff of his code vs a clean bpl12
get a clean copy of the latest (patch in all the good stuff, olc, or what
then work his diff into it.
