For patch files which contain hunks only for a single file (possible with
its properties), I (as a user) think it would make sense to support

        svn patch PATCH_FILE FILE_TO_PATCH

(where FILE_TO_PATCH may have a different basename than predicted by
PATCH_FILE, even.)

IIRC, patch(1) supports this too.
