Make it another strong +1. I really don't see the point of having
that date, and it make "git log" really hard to read on the branches.
Instead of using the date, how about we use the SHA1, or else
the output of "git describe". The latter is really nice for
branches, as it contains the number of commits since most
recent tag found on a given branch.
This would be done during the build, using git info if the sources
are under git. For those building from source tarballs, I should
be able to pre-insert that info during the source packaging that
we do nightly (of for the releases).
