Yes, we are looking at it only from someone trying to exploit it, not because we are interested in it as a feature :)

I was made aware of this patch posted here http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4771
It seems to deal with a possible problem with compressed tiled TIFF images?
Yes, although that the situation that is fixed by the patch was very particular if I remember correctly. And I'd note that update in place of compressed TIFF is something to use with caution if you are focused in minimizing the file size, since it generally leads to images growing at each update.
Has this patch made its way into the official libtiff source, and is it (or will it be) included in a release?
Yes it has been incorporated into libtiff 4.X HEAD and will be part of the next libtiff release.
