Note that with Arch, since there is no server, the date is set by the
client. If two commiters have their computers clock not exactly
synchronized, it is absolutely possible that patch-(n+1) has a
timestamp smaller than the one of patch-(n).

So, date can't even be reliably used to order changesets, whatever
system is used.
