Sorry, I meant another message on the same thread.  This one:

Here is what Sebastien told me:

  [...] I had taken the habit of displaying
  the revision number in the window title, so that every screenshot would
  explicitly display with which version the problem occurred.

I'm just proposing something, and the remaining work is tiny.  I have
no idea who can or know how to do it.  Right now I don't even know
where is the relevant source code (the one for replicating bzr commits
into the git repo).  I would not mind to do that change myself, but
since it's a trivial change, I think anyone could do it (assuming that
you -the maintainers- agree with the proposal).
