My proposal is in the inbox (update trunk first).

Name: System-bf.193
Author: bf
Time: 11 December 2009, 12:38:45.256 pm
UUID: 4609ebf3-3481-4f3a-99d6-1c4e9534d2fa
Ancestors: System-nice.192

- after updating, set the current system version to the latest date found in all system packages. Also set the highest update number to the sum of version numbers.
