Bodhi allows resubmitting an update with different packages?!

We always edit updates in KDE SIG and IMHO this is a required feature of 

The workflow we use is:
* push testing update set for the new KDE version,
* edit update with fixed packages as often as necessary,
* eventually, queue the update to stable, with or without one final edit.

I don't see why we should clutter Bodhi with old versions of the update set. 
In addition, some builds would be in both the old and the new update set, 
which IMHO is much more confusing than an edited update (and AFAIK Bodhi 
doesn't even allow it at this time).
