Or *any* revision control system?

Dates are just rough ideas of when changes were implemented. Two years
later, I can look back and say 'that project lasted from September
2003 to April 2004'; leap seconds aren't exactly my top priority at
that point.

The only time it would really matter would be with CVS -- and only
because CVS didn't have atomic commits or automatic full-tree
versions.  As an informational tool, I think the date is pretty
ubiquitous across RCSes.  They are, after all, supposed to track
changes over time. :)
