I'll check for this but first time  I hear about  that. The problem is
not easy, because patch is not alone. Diff  files are usually produced
by redirection  on the command line, which  means text mode diff files
(unless a patched  diff !). Text mode  diff files with binary files to
be patched usually does not mix happily.

does not seem to work that way. But a perl script could do it yes.
