Hi Xing-Bo,

thanks for the detailed example. Your idea to provide a function to
patch the model is actually very good. I need to improve the
corresponding code to make it a bit more user friendly and universal,
but this shouldn't take too much time.

In FeynCalc, if there is a function to patch the model file generated by FeynRules, then people can easily use the patched FeynArts. In fact, I think there already exists such a function. Because, when installing FeynCalc and patching FeynArts, the model files in ./FeynCalc/FeynArts/Models/ are automatically patched.
