        I still feel it useful to include the commit identifier
        somewhere.  Why, report-emacs-bug already puts the version in
        the subject, and on Git ‘master’, a single version value may
        correspond to vastly different trees.

        One more thing to note is that English Wikipedia consistently
        uses “as of” to mean “at that particular point in time” without
        any implication of the state of affairs being /changed/ at that
        same point.  See [1], for instance.
