I want to fontify quote blocks (i use them a lot for note taking and writing paper) so that they stand out (and so I enable org-fontify-quote-and-verse-blocks) but it would be useful to preserve the local fontification of emphasis, links etc. inside quote blocks. This can easily be achieved with a patch like this org.el:

<          ((string= block-type "quote")
< (add-face-text-property beg1 (min (point-max) (1+ end1)) 'org-quote t))
<          ((string= block-type "verse")
< (add-face-text-property beg1 (min (point-max) (1+ end1)) 'org-verse t)))
             ((string= block-type "quote")
(add-text-properties beg1 (min (point-max) (1+ end1)) '(face org-quote)))
             ((string= block-type "verse")
(add-text-properties beg1 (min (point-max) (1+ end1)) '(face org-verse))))

In this invocation add-face-text-property appends org-quote to the face property, and hence all other fontification is kept.

Does this interfere with something else or what people would expect? In my view it looks much better, but I guess that can depend on the appearance of org-quote and org-verse (I have them as font-lock-comment-face, just a slightly different colour, on top of which italics etc. look good).
