If it would work what is the proper way to find a patch's immediate ancestor

The patch-logs for tags include a Continuation-of: header. If it's not present, you can assume the ancestor is the previous patchlevel.

and descendent?

Due to tagging, a revision can have multiple descendants, even within a given version.

If you're interested in the line of ancestry that produced the latest revision, I think you'd have to scan the archive backwards from the most recent revision to find that out. (And it might be "none".)
