Re-using the name doesn't hide the old versions, it just makes them
gray.  They're still listed, with date and may be sorted by date.  If
you select the "Activity>All" tab then the different versions are linked
to in the comment stream, providing context.

90+% of the time I'm interested in the most recent version of the patch,
so the value of having it highlighted is great.  Frequently when
different names are used I mistakenly download the wrong version and
waste time reviewing it, but when the same name is used I always get the
most recent.  The highlighting is very effective for me.
