If a build called 2.7.3 is built on the 2.7.3 release date, one may
reasonably think that it is built from the 2.7.3 code released on that
date. Besides which, I recognized that as the header from the PSF
distributed build ;-). More problematical is any build, even of the same
name, built later, by anyone else, as with Ubuntu releases.

My impression is that Ubuntu does not build from any of *our* hg revs,
but that they cherry pick patches to apply in their repository. I agree
that is they gave *their* repository url and checkout id, that would be
helpful. We could possible do that with our releases too.
