It's tricky exactly because of that reason (i.e multiple plugins editing
the same files/methods). I don't see a clean solution to this problem. One
way would be to just apply the patch. If it fails, notify the user and
prompt them to apply the code manually. Bright minds out there, your
thoughts are welcome.
