quilt for patch management?

ever since fiddling with IcedTea's patches I was wondering why the
Makefiles make no use of the quilt tool to manage patches. The tool
would still allow us to have a directory where to place the patches and
would make it more easy to manually apply them.

	patch -p0 < <patch>
would become
	quilt import -p0 <patch>

and finally
	quilt push -a

If someone wants to investigate manually quilt push/pop are there.

Is this something you IcedTea developers would be interested in?
