Using pretty-printed dates would make it easier to disambiguate the 
seven-letter commit ID prefixes to the complete IDs if later commits 
happen to introduce IDs with the same prefix (in which case the commit 
date would help narrow done in which commit range to look for the given 
prefix).  (Not that the full Git IDs are unambiguous, either.  But when 
they start to clash, we are fucked, anyway.)
