It appears on a quick reading that you leave any reject files on the
file system after an attempt to apply patches.

That seems reasonable, presuming that you expect human intervention
to resolve the rejects before continuing.

But what if the second or subsequent attempt to run the patch application,
and there are rejects still on the file system from a prior attempt?
I.E: The previous human intervention did not include deleting the earlier
reject files.  

Wouldn't it make sense to be sure the file system is clean of any reject
files __before__ attempting to run the patch application?
I.E: Only checking afterward does not tell you success/fail of most 
recent attempt because the rejects might have pre-existed the patch attempt.
