IMHO, here is the simplest solution:

o since we already use Ant, can we use the <tstamp> target [1] to set
some global property variable
o make sure this property variable is available to the contracts (so
that other contracts may also use it) OR
o pass the variable as a parameter to the contract (I'm not sure if
this is the right approach)

I don't know enough about how the Ant build files are setup right now
to integrate this, but it should be fairly simple for someone more
familiar with the system. I figure that since we are already using
this huge amount of Java, its stupid to write a Python program to
generate a date :)
