Every ebuild that defines its own src_prepare, yes. That's the point:
the package mangler can't know where to apply patches itself otherwise,
and user patches are rare enough that developers are very likely to
forget to check if they aren't made to.

We had this discussion in the original thread. If we're just looking
for a feature that "might work sometimes", there's no point sticking
any of this in the EAPI at all.
