For Patchwork, is the rule that all possible numbers must appear an equal number of times in each row or column, or just all numbers that appear? The example and rules text are a bit ambiguous.

Rephrased, would the following be a valid solution grid:
1212
3434
1212
3434
As in every row and column, every number in it appears the same number of times.

I have a couple more questions about Patchwork:

Can there be regions of different sizes?
In case IHNN's example is valid: the "number of times each value appears in a row/column", is that always the same for all rows and columns, or could different rows/columns have different amounts? E.g. a 121212 row as well as a 123231 row?

I'm changing the rules to:
Place a number into each cell so that each region contains the numbers from 1 to N with no repeats, where N is the number of cells in all regions. Numbers of the same value may not touch one another orthogonally. Each row and column contains each number from 1 to N the same number of times.

This will be there in the new IB that I'll post in a while, and in the competition areas.

I hope this answers all questions.

Edit: Feel free to ask if its still unclear.

Sorry for the very late action but this is done now.

(to clarify for others, it wasn't an additional solution to the puzzle, it was just the correct solution sent via email.)
