Consistent and predictable behaviour for a given patch type make
sense, although there does need to be an error code for when a client
sends the wrong thing (mistake or bug).

Doesn't the client have to do some negotiating to determine the
available patch types, btw?  That'd be enough information that the
client shouldn't have to try different methods after that.
