Re: Automatic set-serial?

The simplest thing seems to be to set the "ident" attribute on all the .m4 files, and change the line:

#serial nn



which then gets expanded to the commit (i.e. blob) ID of the last commit in each case.

They're not monotonically increasing, but that doesn't seem to be important; they are (pretty much guaranteed to be) unique in the history of any one file.

(Not only is this particularly easy; I can't find a simple way to get git to maintain monotonically increasing serial numbers.)
