+1 for the global thing. But an alias can do that for the initial
unpacking of source packages.
But if you are working with a VCS then I don't think this has anything
to do with peoples preferences but with the workflow of the VCS. Wether
sources are commited with patches applied or not. Having the patch
behaviour differ from the workflow of the VCS is just trouble.
And I hope all team-maintained packages do use some VCS.
