[arch-releng] archiso: also putting the hour in version string

I would like to run multiple builds per day. For this I would like to also put the hour of building in the iso filenames.

something like:

diff --git a/configs/releng/build.sh b/configs/releng/build.sh
index 1aa80fd..7fce685 100755
--- a/configs/releng/build.sh
+++ b/configs/releng/build.sh
@@ -4,7 +4,7 @@ set -e -u
 iso_label="ARCH_$(date +%Y%m)"
-version=$(date +%Y.%m.%d)
+version=$(date +%Y.%m.%d.%H)
 arch=$(uname -m)

Or, maybe this is too releng-specific (i.e. most people who run archiso probably prefer $(date +%Y.%m.%d), in which case: can you give archiso a flag so that I can control the version as a parameter?

./build.sh all_iso_single 2011.08.14.12
./build.sh all_iso_dual 2011.08.14.12
./build.sh all_iso_dual 2011.08.14-lets-try-some-new-code

passing it as a flag would also be more robust.  Things could go wrong (I think?) if the all_iso_single runs at 23:45 of one day and all_iso_dual runs at 00:15 the next morning.
