 I am sending a patch and Changelog file for trunk (should be the same
 patch for 1.8) supporting the PATCH verb defined on the approved RFC
 5789. Here is the link for such RFC:
 
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5789
 
 Patch should be used to partially update resources over the web using
 a media type that gives enough information for such procedure.
 
 The patch adds a new PATCH class, similar to POST. It also defines a
 patch method to Net::HTTP instance. Finally, the code from post was
 refactored out into a send_entity method, because patch and post
 tunneling behavior are the same, with the only difference on which
 http method being used.
