While I'm not sure I would like this feature as a whole, compared to
the status quo, the only way this would really work in a reasonable way
(and maybe not at all in some cases without the duplication) is if you
don't eapply them in a way that lists them again, but it would replace
PATCHES functionality or you'd do some bash magic to eapply everything
in $FILES that ends in .patch or something.
