hello andy.

generally speaking: great to see RDF Patch being tackled! time to use this
PATCH method. if it is solved well, it should be an awesome way to keep
collections in sync, for example.

one thing worries me a bit:

is there really no way how this can be based on RDF itself? JSON Patch
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6902) and XML Patch
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-wilde-xml-patch) are using their own
metamodels, and i think that makes it as easy as possible to produce and
consume them. i would assume the same might be true for RDF's patch model.

cheers,

dret.
