I would like to propose to guarantee standardization all of all binary 
builds of TL2005. Personally, I use the @2005/08/21:17:00:00 type of 
addition with p4 sync to make sure I get a reproducable set of sources.

Hence, at the time Karl asks us to make a new build, he could tell us 
exactly which datetime string to use when syncing with 

The advantage of a scheme lik ethis is that when you want to debug 
different behaviours on differen systems later you are certain of one 
thing: the exact source code used.


PS. The only thing I do not know is if p4 uses local time or repository 
time or GMT or whatever, but that can be easily found out.
