libalpm/makepkg wrapper with "autopatch" feature?

After Xyne dropped the support of bauerbill, is there any wrapper can patch PKGBUILD etc. automatically as bauerbill do?
Thanks.

Yaourt can do something like this when you have installed its optional dependency customizepkg.

Not that this is useful now...   but there is also fairly solid rumours that a future version of ABS will help you do this.

I do hope so smile
It seems that I've to wait for now

[update]
I've tried customizepkg-new. It's not useful to me, since it cannot produce a .patch like bauerbill does.

'Solid' eh.... once you post it I don't think it qualifies as 'rumor' anymore.

@cap_sensitive - generating patches is just a matter of using diff with various options, better to learn to do it yourself rather than relying on tools which may break in future (or get unmaintained).

I know how to generate patch manually. However, it's really a pleasure to me to getting things done automatically/semi-automatically.
I used to patch a bunch of PKGBUILD by myself, it's really painful.
