[pacman-dev] package versions with vcs packages

Hello everybody,

hg and svn packages do set vcs revision infos for package versions. Any
reason this does not apply to git, cvs and darcs?

Using a date string has the drawback that two revisions compiled the same day
result in packages with the same version...

A patch for git is attached. Any chance to get this merged? I could take a
look at darcs and cvs as well.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
