This was discussed when the patches project was being discussed. Patches
are *usually* temporary fixes, so keeping all of them would
unneccessarily clutter the patches site. Also, unlike the hints, patches
*usually* don't have much educational value. For someone really
interested in the antiquated patches, (s)he can get them from the
patches mailing list archives or the CVS.
