Because we are dropping information. The SVN revisions are always 
increasing, and thus (independent on the build date, which can be at any 
moment) I can compare two builds and retain information on which came first.

With git of course this doesn't hold, i.e., you cannot say which commit 
came earlier between abcd1234 and 5678abcd. So I see some added value if 
we enrich it this way.
