By finding someone to release yet another branch that pulls all of these 
together and also adheres to this proposal.

In the scene file you can then test for the presence of all the features 
you need, using multiple "#patch" statements.

That's exactly the purpose of this proposal: To allow people to compile 
collections of multiple patches, while still providing a standard 
interface to identify each and every one of them.
