This all is part of a bigger strategy, we've already discussed here.
See: http://www.metux.de/download/oss-qm-project-2010050101.pdf

The whole idea is getting rid of individual patches, instead use a 
modern VCS. If you don't like to take the METUX.* branches, I'll be 
lucky to open (and even maintain) separate GENTOO.* branches.

Actually, I'm already doing so for quite some time now.
But often cannot/doesnt want to apply hotfixes ad-hoc. That's what
OSS-QM for: provide downstream branches for distros, embedded 
maintainers, etc.
