Hi Peter, all,

Also I have a variant ready that returns the git-svn-id if on is there.

I don't think this is necessary: We already have the build id, the build
date and now the git hash (which is a unique link to the last commit it
was based on):

This is how we did it with SVN, why should we change it?

I made a logical mistake regarding the git-svn-id, so I think your first
patch is totally sufficient.
