That's what rbutil is doing...but bootloader (like Rockbox) have a
rXXXXX-<date> version string for svn versions, and a fixed number for
releases. I'm not sure what rbutils versioning has to do with it.

There was no confusion because only 2 people really work on rbutil, and
both know about the versioning. It would most likely confuse me.

I wanted a branch so that work on AMS targets can can continue in SVN
without risking stability of the bootloaders (and the one in the branch
are pretty stable it seems) during our current testing phase. And to
have new PP bootloader with proper version numbers. I didn't know about
"make VERSION=X", and I won't make a branch again just for that.
