the version of htdig 3.1.6 to include in Sarge will be the version
previously in Debian, plus all all patches for 3.1.6 with a later date
than the version on the website. Does it make sense to not patch up?

It certainly makes sense to include all bug fix patches from
ftp://ftp.ccsf.org/htdig-patches/3.1.6/, but not all patches there are bug
fixes. Some of them may not be exactly what you want because they alter
the behaviour from what's documented and/or expected, and may be lacking
in documentation. It would be a judgement call whether to include what
I'd consider to be optional patches such as AdjustableLoggingPatch.tar.gz,
Google-style.0, collections.0, cookie.0, cookies.0.gz, masking_noindex.0,
multiple-noindex.1, and ssl.12. However, most other patches there are
pretty necessary bug fixes, or unobtrusive new features.
