Ha! Awesome. :) Sorry, must have mixed you up then!

The catalyst code has no part in this, but it takes a portage snapshot
as one of it's inputs, and if you maintain a custom snapshot (with
only packages you need) then you know what gets used.

I'm not sure it is a solved problem. If you want a different solution
than basically maintaining your own portage snapshot then the easiest
way to track patches is (third time now) to add bookkeeping in the
epatch function.
