How does one create a patch on a complex geomtry?

Is there some tool or method of defining patches on my geometry?

autoPatch doesn't gives me the right patches as the patches I want to define are not easily recognisable using different angles in autoPatch.

I've searched through the forum and found that 'patchTool' was in version 1.4, and seems to be what I'm looking for, but since it seems to have been discontinued, is there some other newer tool/utility that will do the job?

Or should I just try get patchTool working on 1.4?

How do other people define patches on complex geometries?

Any suggestions are most welcome,

For anyone else who has the same sort of problem,

I found that patchTool in OF-1.4-dev and earlier does the job, even if it's a bit tedious for finer meshes.
