 Installing new patch version w/o backing out old version
Say you have patch 100999-21 installed under Solaris 2.2.  Is it safe to
installpatch 100999-33 without first backing out 100999-21?  Is it safe in
the general case (that is, with any patch)?

If the new patch changes the same (or more) files, there is no
problem. This is generally true. On clients we don't save the old files
and can't backout. No problems so far.
