I don't think there's currently a mechanism for a wiki user to remove a previously-uploaded file, although I could well be wrong about that. Anyhow, as you correctly point out, it might be better to create a separate wiki page and to link to historical patches from there - say, call the page john/patches/historical if you like. I don't think there's much need to be moving the actual patch files in the wiki hierarchy - just move the links to them from john/patches to john/patches/historical. I'd expect most people to silently abandon their old uploaded patches anyway - not everyone is as careful as you are. So any convention we might come up with should be very simple.
