The design of "duprkit" didn't forget patches at all.

There are many ways to apply apply patches:

1. Put separated patches to the Collection repository, as per the
   collection specification: https://github.com/dupr/DefaultCollection
   Then apply it manually in the header script of .durpkg .
   This is similar to what AUR does.

2. If one like, just fold the patches into the .durpkg, which may result
   in some extra lines in the .durpkg:

   ^ debian/patches/series
   ^ debian/patches/foobar.patch
   -foo bar

   And you may beed to change the source/format accordingly.

   The fact is, any plain file, as long as none of its lines starts with
   a single '^', could be folded into the .durpkg or the .f822 file.
   Detailed file format specification can be found in the code comments[1]

3. Fold the patches into .durpkg, but not in the quilt format.

   ^ some-working-directory/xxx.patch
   -foo bar

   The header script of .durpkg is able to use it.

4. may be more? ...
