The docs generate at least two of these:
The Makefile case probably can't be automated, since it changes to add
a "patchlevel" of it's own when the release is done separately from a
Python release (such as the 2.2p1 doc release). We've traditionally
also "hard-coded" the release date into the source boilerplate.tex, so
that formatting the released doc sources doesn't generate a new date.
(Switching CVS back to \today afterward generates yet another
There's probably a better way to handle this -- I don't like all the
dance steps we have to do for this either!
