I haven't read any personal feelings yet, apart from personal preferences about
how to handle patches.

It *is* a shame that the patch-handling aspect of 3.0 (Quilt) is offputting
enough to folks that some are avoiding 3.0 altogether and not benefitting from
the other improvements. However the single-debian-patch workaround is a pretty
good compromise, IMHO, and perhaps just needs wider awareness.
