I'd be happy to revert this if the majority of people prefer the other
format. Bodhi will still use the n-v-r style URLs for the
updates-testing digests, but will default to the static IDs otherwise.
The biggest problem with using the builds in the URL is that the URLs break if they
are edited to add/remove/update them. I guess we could add some
additional logic to try and be clever and find the update even if one of
the builds is missing or modified.
