I completely agree with that. I've even considered doing some kind of display
mode/page where we merge the cvs changelog and the autobuild tables so that we
can see exactly that the latest CVS changes are in between the separate
builds. But I've not felt that I've had enough time or been bored enough to
make it happen just yet.

For CVS-based tests and builds, it should be enough to display the GMT time of
the cvs update command. And we do that in the "date =" line, as that should be
the same second the cvs command is issued, unless the host is very slow.

For the snapshot it would be easy to just include the exact time somewhere and
not just the date, and then use that time instead of the "date =" time we
currently display even for snapshot builds.
