"I've never worked with them but if the dlls and exes have a File Version property that you can control then I don't see any reason you wouldn't be able to patch them."

This.  Our products have multiple obfuscated DLL's, each with a version resource that is updated for every build.  So patching works just fine for us.  That said, because of the build version numbers we have to use a PatchFamily to specify which components we actually want in the patch.  This implies of course to make sure the product you are patching has just one assembly per component (plan for patching up front).
