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.
