I make the following proposal:

Use shortrefs for the filename, but use dates on the wikipage or at least
annotate the hyperlink with the date.

Then you can quickly see how old a patch is and estimate how much work it would
be to update it to the current HEAD. Also thanks to the shortref in the filename
you can easily find the commit where it definitely worked to have a starting
point for bisection if there are any problems after updating the patch to
current HEAD.
