Thanks, Martin. Your package is just fine for placing the information. I
shall use it for the typesetting. But I am still unclear about getting
the file-modification time into the command redefining the subfooter. If
I understood correctly, the time option of prelim2e gives the compilation
time, when latex does the processing; but this is not quite right,
especially if I typeset a book containing pieces that were last changed
at different times, and this information is significant for our use.
On the other hand, every versioning system will be too much overhead for
a team of two authors. We would like to stay away from these.
Thanks again, --Micha
