Tracking whether patches have been applied?

Hi all,

I'd like to have a tool that can look at the patches sent to a monitored
list and tell me which have been applied.  (For bonus points, it could
even say which of the unapplied patches *could* be applied cleanly.)
You would, obviously, need to supply a repository/branch to use as the
"reference" tree for comparisons.

Do you think Patchwork (or rather pwclient?) could/should be such a tool?
I'd be interested in working on it if the feature is wanted.
