JFTR, is also works with quilt installed, given that you don't rename
applied patches.

The following shell function automates the required quilt pop/push and
the adjustment of the series file:
    dquilt-rename() {                                                                                                                                                            (
        source $HOME/.quiltrc;                                                                                                                                                   cd "${QUILT_PATCHES:-patches}";                                                                                                                                          j=`quilt applied | wc -l`;                                                                                                                                               quilt pop -a;                                                                                                                                                            if [ -f "$1" ] && ! [ -f "$2" ]; then
            mv "$1" "$2";
            sed -i "s/^$1\$/$2/" series;
        for i in $(seq $j); do
            quilt push || [ $? eq 2 ] || return 1;

I just wrote it and only ran it once, so don't expect it to be mature.
It requires the snippet given in /usr/share/doc/quilt/README.source as
