Tags can't be edited due to using the POST method with the API #474

Currently, the !tag edit subcommand is just an alias of !tag set. This means that if we try to edit an existing tag, the bot will use the POST http method to communicate with the API. Since we're not posting a new tag, but editing an existing entry, the API will reject this request.

Instead of using POST, we should be using PATCH, since we're only partially updating the entry in the database.

This commit makes sure we're using the PATCH method to update tags,
instead of the POST method. The problem was that the `!tags edit`
command was an alias of `!tags set`, which uses the POST method to
post new tags to the API.

However, when a tag with a given name already exists, the API will
refuse a POST request in an attempt to update it; we need to use the
PATCH method to the `bot/tags/{tag_name}` endpoint instead.

I fixed this by creating a separate subcommand, `!tags edit`, that
uses the correct PATCH method to update an existing tag.
