The old code is still in crew, but not thoroughly tested. To activate 
it, set the ui.patch configuration option to the patch command to call like:

patch = patch

The --binary options should still be passed under Windows.

mpatch is supposed to work out of the box. It evaluates its input in 
binary mode so you may have issues while trying to apply an LF patch to 
a CRLF source or the opposite. Otherwise, it should work, I use it every 
day with Windows CRLF sources or with mercurial LF codebase (using 
recent crew builds).
