Believe me, you don't want these people submitting bugs unfiltered by me.  
Especially since they can't remember when they grabbed the snapshot.

Seriously, though, it would be an aid to testing if we could add a tag to the 
version or README file or something for the pgsql-snapshot that told us build 
date.   If there is one, I can't find it.   When Marc gets done putting out 
fires, I'll ask him how difficult that would be.
