Do you often build a package for testing, find out it works, and then
go and rebuild it /again/ with a proper nvr?

A good nevra strategy across your branches should give you the freedom
to use always good nevras for testing, so on the chance that one of
your builds is good it can just be moved and you don't have to rebuild
just to use a good nevra.
