The option I want needs to run on systems without git.

I want more than just a flag.  I want to know that the result of an edit, 
build, run is different from a following edit, build, run.    A time stamp 
solves that.  Anything else if overkill and we should probably stop 
bike-sheding it.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
