pwclient is alive and won't be going anywhere, but it's still using the
now-deprecated XML-RPC API. Eventually this will move to the REST API,
but I just haven't found the time to do so yet.

There's no patchwork SDK yet and git-pw is intended for use as a tool
rather than a library (the internal API isn't stable). However, the
Patchwork API itself is very trivial so requests should get you what
you want very easily.
