Yes, that number includes the date/time and all the decimal digits
from the SHA1.

It might even be unique. :-)

Anyway, I believe that Abeltje is fixing it right now to be something
more useful.

Also ive modified the .patch file generator to include the output of
git-describe. So a valid .patch file will look like:

eg: "blead 2008-12-20.17:22:02
a2450f8e38913ec23222dc5de2f3dae8f5591d33 GitLive-blead-45-ga2450f8"

I believe that the plan right now is to use the git-describe output
(possibly in conjunction with the date/time) in smoke reports
patchlevel stuff, and -V output, and things like that.

However we really have very minimal limits on what we can with stuff.
We can produce as complicated a setup as we wish. :-)
