Because I want an automagic procedure that will be done many times. Without external scripts.
And because I'll have to make ebuilds for other things, so that would be great to be consistent.
I know roughtly how to handle kernel-2 eclass based ebuilds, but in my case, I would prefer local source fetch (from ebuild rep). For now, I can just have kernel-2 based ebuild to fetch a .diff or .tar.bz2 from Internet. I would just like it to be directly in ebuild dir.

I thank RB a lot for its precisions, but is there really no way of having SRC_URI auto-fetch a patch from ebuild dir instead of Internet ? I don't really want to switch from kernel-2 based ebuild to more generic EAPI 2 ebuild just to make a local patch applied. -- Pierre.
