What exactly would need to be supported? XMLHttpRequest (since level 1)  
supports arbitrary method names except those disabled for security  
reasons. (Passing "patch" would not make a "PATCH" request though, but as  
long as implementations don't start uppercasing it it should be no  
problem...)
