I don't use dpatch, but cdbs with simple-patchsys.mk enabled which brings
the same functionality you describe. I.e: you can drop a patch in
debian/patches and it'll be automaticaly applied.
My package, however, does not strive for customisation. Instead, you're
encouraged to merge your patches either in upstream or in Herbert's
