No, unfortunately there is no way of cherry-picking automatically. We
discussed this problem with Karsten as well and even with a slightly
different approach of moving to namespaces, the result would be the same.

In a very few cases, I could trick a bit the cherry-pick and help a bit
backporting one or the other patch with minor conflicts. The trick was
to ask Gerrit for the patch for a given file and then forcing applying
it to the "old" file name.

But most of the time I end up rewriting the patch by copy-pasting which
requires lots of attention and is of course error-prone.

Kind regards
