Only if we use 4-digit years. We could use the last 3 digits
instead. (Yes, it _is_ ugly, which is why I suggested to split the
files by GDB version, not by the year.)

The GDB distribution already does that, by invoking DJTAR with a
rename file. I was just trying to keep its size in check.
I'm not sure doing so in DJTAR's code is a good idea: this problem is
unique to GDB, and the right renaming isn't obvious to put it into
code applied automatically.
