Benoit suggested looking at cmdutil, as well.

match: root, getcwd, ui
matchall: root, getcwd, ui
matchfiles: root, getcwd, ui
addremove: root, getcwd, wjoin, dirstate, ui, remove, add, copy, needs
workingctx and parentctx
copy: getcwd, root, walk, dirstate, pathto, wjoin, needs workingctx

These are all interesting candidates for moving into workingdir, and
this would resolve a circular import because patch currently imports
cmdutil for addremove.
