At the time I wrote it, it was on purpose that I did not use any
extension. It limited the possibilities of interaction if another patch
system was in use while still using "3.0 (quilt)".
In the mean time, I abandoned the idea of auto-migrating source packages
so it's probably no longer very important. Thus I could do that.
Are there objections to this change?
