well, problem is that some patches simply cannot make it to offficial sources nor our ebuilds. i have patch for netbeans that automatically adds custom javadocs to getters and setters, final keywords to method arguments etc. this really improves my efficiency when coding in netbeans as it saves me a lot of keystrokes, but the scope of usability of the patches is really small as i do not have time nor knowledge to make this configurable through netbeans options and thus appliable at the ebuild level or at the upstream source level. so from my point of view epatch_user is a must unless i want to each time interfere emerge of netbeans which i definitely do not want to.
