Isn't this what we already have? If you have a source tree that's not
exactly the commit for e.g. openafs-stable-1_6_1, you get a string
saying how many commits you are from a known point, and a git hash. So,
we should be able to identify exactly what build something came from,
with the existing versioning code, unless I'm mistaken here.
