That would make the string really long. I think the revision is more 
relevant. A build date should follow the file date/time. I know that can 
get lost but....

I guess that the reason you want time/date is for builds that use local 
files and are not a svn co r###. What about replace the cbv[###] with 
the time/date or other user string on local builds?

More thoughts?
