"sort of" not necessarily, 'has $useflag && PATCHES+=( )' has been used
before, not sure if it's used in tree right now or not

src_configure() still requires calling itself (xfconf_src_configure) in

someone suggested writing, for example, xfconf() function that accepts
$@ arguments so you could
but I don't really like that either...
src_setup() would be cool and solve all the forementioned issues
