F11 RPM does not substitute %{PATCH0} anymore

When updating some of my special purpose RPMs for F11 (RPM 4.7.1) I found
out that a macro like %{PATCH0} does not work anymore to specify the
pathname of patch #0.  %{SOURCE0} etc. still seems to work.

Is this a bug or a feature?

I can easily specify my patch file, that I for some reason want to apply
manually in the %prep section, to be a "Source" file i.s.o. a "Patch"
file, but I just do not see why this has been changed.
