no. trunk is by definition "without any patches". you either have trunk, or a patch, never both.
I thought trunk has included patches, like cargodist.
As soon as it's in trunk, it's not a patch anymore. Similar like food is no food anymore (or changes its 'meaning' at least) as soon as you have eaten it.

They were patches before they were included, now it's just part of the game.

A patch is a patch because it "patches" an existing whole. The existing whole in this case is the "trunk" or "master" branch. After the patch is merged the patch becomes a part of the existing whole.

Maybe what is confusing is this: a former patch may be merged in a way into trunk so that it's optional.. But then a former patch just became a configurable game feature.
