[OpenSCAD] new "Special Variable"?

Also, I'd like to have *$date* and *$now*. 

OpenSCAD version is based on date, which I like very much. I've not seen any
other program do so. Very often I find a program on the net, it says version
2.3.1 or something, but who knows it could be as old as 20 years back. 

Using date/time immediately gives a sense of how recent the program is. I'd
prefer it that way. Before I start using git, I labeled my "versions" by
dates like 20150503-1. Year always up front so they can be sorted. 

Another usage of *$date* and *$now*: logging --- if you want to output echo
to a file for logging purpose.
