Found some (if not all) of the Interface files that were patched in this build in the Data\Cache\enUS (or whatever locale you use) directory in the build's patch MPQ. From what I can tell, though, any totally new files aren't in there at all. The new spell flyout files aren't in there, for example, but are in another MPQ in text form rather than as a patch (since they're new).

Looks like it may take a bit more work than before to extract things that can be committed to a revision control repo or diffed before a new kit is released that can cope with the new scheme. Nothing a little scripting can't handle, but it's still a change to adapt to.
