Description Another Mortal 2015-07-02 07:48:54 UTC
I find the ‘epatch_user’ approach a **lot** simpler and cleaner
than having to copy ebuilds to my local overlay for applying patches.
Unfortunately, too many ebuilds do *not* include ‘epatch_user’
(for no good reason, other than noboday having requested this).
Now, I’m getting tired having to ask ebuild by ebuild; so, I’d
much prefer to have this functionality as __standard__, unless
-of course- there’s obvious drawbacks (which I couldn’t think of).

Reproducible: Always
