Thanks!  I've placed this into the FTP contrib directory as well, moving
the older revisions under historical.

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.

Thanks again,
