Not really, because I don't recommend maintaining patches in the form
of .src.patch and .cygwin.patch. After making code patches, I copy
the .src.patch into one or more patches with appropriate names, which I
then add to PATCH_URI and keep in version control. As
for .cygwin.patch, with automatic setup.hint generation and no need for
Cygwin READMEs, there isn't much of a need for CYGWIN-PATCHES anymore.
