To clarify, the timestamp is stored whenever HISTTIMEFORMAT has a
non-null value; the bash version doesn't particularly matter unless
you're suggesting that HISTTIMEFORMAT is non-null by default under
some bash versions.

If there aren't really any concerns about using the same history file
with older versions of bash, then wouldn't it be better to have a new
file format that can handle multi-line commands more directly?
