Although this adds a bit of precision and flexibility, it leads to laundry lists in the ebuild, especially if/when we start getting more rigorous about prefixification.  The attached eclass provides eprefixify_patch, which simply prefixifies the patch itself before applying.

Feels dirty too ;)

What I'm using it /for/ is a more interesting question that I'd like to bring up in a separate, presumably more controversial thread.  Anyhow, for the moment I thought these might come in handy or at least precipitate an interesting flamewar :)

I fail to see how this is necessary.  Portage already fixes those/these
