I don't think there are any problems.

I've been using a modified base.eclass that died if patching failed for the 
last few weeks, so I know the packages I have installed don't have failing 
patches. Since this thread started I've modified it to use epatch and so far 
that's worked OK. 

So I think we can commit this (with epatch, that is). Can I consider the 
thread so far a consensus to let me do it?

BTW, I've managed to lost all my mail from Thursday, so if there was something 
relevant in this thread could someone please forward it to me.
