As it now stands, each run of <tstamp> uses a new date and time internally. It would be nice if we could run <tstamp> with an id that can be used by a later <tstamp> (with refid) that uses the same time and date as the first execution.

This would allow large builds to have a single concept of a timestamp even though different parts need different formats; as it now stands, the single instance of <tstamp> needs to have every format used by the whole build, but this is clunky with large, modular builds.
