I'm boggled.

This is pretty much the only way to maintain stuff in the Unix world and
I figured it would have pretty close analogues in the rest of the
world.  How does it work elsewhere?

Anyway, in Unix and things-like-Unix (Linux, Cygwin, whatever), you
create a patch file with the diff command (diff file1 file2 > patchfile,
or more usually diff -R dir1 dir2), and you patch with the patch
command: patch < patchfile in the directory with file1 gives you file2. 
diff and patch ought to be standard tools shipped with any Unixish OS.
