IMO prefixing a patch name with $P creates the perception that the patch
is used only from ebuild version $PV. Apparently we do not agree on this
so there is not much more I can tell to convince others.

I suppose what everyone does in their part of the tree is their
business, but a small subset of packages I maintain have other
maintainers as well. It is annoying to see rules you assume being
respected on your ebuilds being broken at every bump made by others.
