Subject: [gentoo-user] scope of user patches via epatch

Is there any way to make the patches under /etc/portage/patches
applicable to more than a single exact version of each package?  Right
now, every time I emerge -u I have to check if I have patches for a
package on the updated list, and if so make a new subdirectory for the
new version and copy or link the patches there [1].  This is a chore I
could live without.  So my question is if there's any wildcard mechanism
to match multiple versions.

[1] Some fail to apply of course but that's ok, still less work to see
which ones fail than to try checking separately each patch if it applies
or not.

Please don't Cc: me privately on mailing lists and Usenet,
