Yes, there are problems with multiple patches. In my opinion
we should spend some more time on making the optional patches as compatible
as possible. - I did that with a couple of dwm-patches some time ago.

That's another option, but keeping track of applied patches on each branch
will become a pile of work imho, so this again would result in making
the patches compatible.
