Ok. Hope gump has all these projects in place already. (and where is decent gump 
web site? One I saw at provides almost no 
information comparing to old gump).

We were talking about our own build and how it finds libraries, not gump... So 
we should have library name prefix somewhere in case it does not match project 
name. Or if project produces several libraries...

And for our build, timestamp or version do not matter, as in ant we use 
<include/> filters with "*" wildcard.
