Literally so. Never mind that upstream doesn't have release tarballs, 
they haven't even been using tags that we could refer to.

Actually that will probably work quite nicely. Sensible to include the 
git commit id as well as the date. The other nice thing is it will show 
up in the uscan watch column even though upstream doesn't use tags or 
release versions.

I'd use 0.0~git instead of 0.0+git since v0.0 isn't released yet.

Thanks Andreas,
