OK. There it is.

The "Version:" header contains the date (and time) of the last `save-file'

... *thanks to* the local variables:

  │ ;; Local Variables:
  │ ;; time-stamp-format: "%:y%02m%02d.%02H%02M"
  │ ;; time-stamp-start: "Version: "
  │ ;; time-stamp-end: "$"
  │ ;; End:

This instructs the time-stamp package to update the "Version:" time stamp every
time you save the buffer ("last change"), if you have the following in your
`.emacs' config file:

  (add-hook 'before-save-hook 'time-stamp)

This version number seems useful to me, to always know when different versions
have been saved, even outside of any VC system.

May I ask to leave them, if possible?
