It's certainly possible, it just requires someone with sufficient time
and motivation to do it.

I don't know of anyone who currently has plans to do this.

You could generate the patch in that form fairly easily by doing something
like the following:

Now, in the work directory run a script that does the same thing as the
post-extract target from openjdk7/Makefile. Then
diff -u work work.patched > patch-set
