It would also help if recipes staying on the same version

PR value so their rebuilt versions can be put into a package repo.

Throwing away the buildroot (as suggested any time some obscure
build error happens) and restarting a complete image build
resets the autopr value so the repo would contain packages with
the same r0.0 release string and the package manager doesn't know
that the package is newer.
If you want persistent PRs between builds after deleting the build
tree, simply archive the PR database.

We're not going back to manually updating the PR on changes.
