Yes, but it's trivial to try again after marking a region, compared to
what I had to do with `epatch' (specifying paths of N files again).

I think applying a patch should not be a "work" of several minutes.  As
long as we speak about 5 +/- 3 seconds or so, I don't care if I have to
mark a region and try again any third time or so.
