Right now the same package moves from master URL to master URL as it is pushed
from testing to updates to GA to whatever. That means the same package gets
downloaded many times over because it changed URL (and browsers, proxies, etc
understand new url = new file)

My proposal is to never move a package, put it in a single unchanging place
after a koji build, and just index it or not in the relevant repodata when it
gets promoted or demoted.
