[AWS ECS deploy] Support for patching task definitions


It would be a nice feature if one could provide a patch for an existing task definition rather than complete JSON in AWS ECS pipe's`TASK_DEFINITION`

A valid use case would be to bump the Docker image version for a container definition of a task without touching anything else. I guess one could easily find other use cases, though. 

Such a feature could be implemented in the form of a `TASK_DEFINITON_MODE=patch|overwrite' flag, with the implementation for `patch` being sth like 

TASK_DEFINITION=`aws ecs describe-task-definition --task-definition ${name} | json-patch -p ${TASK_DEFINITION}`

@Krzysztof Sierszeń  hi. Thanks for your idea. We will investigate about that and notify you if this feature becomes available.
