Having patches that are not upstream is a hassle in general.

But since those packages are basically unmaintained upstream as far as
I remember, it means upstream won't do any new release, and therefore
we won't have to update/change the patches. Having patches is really a
big annoyance when the upstream project is still active and makes
releases, since we have to update our patches whenever we bump the
package.
