Just to clarify (since I think I started the serial number thing), my
thought was a DNS-like augmentation of the timestamp with a number in
order to avoid clashes, e.g. when importing a zillion patches from CVS
or similar.  This number could be zero in most cases, and simpy
increased by one when it would otherwise cause a clash.

It seems to me to be a better solution than waiting a second for a new
timestamp, anyway.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
