I also wondered about this but unfortunatly, I came to the conclusion
that this won't be possible, at lesat not easily. The whole thing works
because I'm mirroring the SVN to bzr and build from there. The build
recipe has only access to the bzr revision number, but not (no longer)
to the svn revision.

What I could do however is to encode the build date to the version
string. would this help?
