Build TimeStamp passed to build script

Hi,

I'm investigating moving from *Luntbuild *to *TeamCity *and one of the convenient things that seems to be lacking in TeamCity is a start of build timestamp passed to the build script via an ANT property. I could, of course, simply use the <tstamp/> task as soon as the build starts but this does not take into consideration the time taken to retrieve the project sources.

Could a build.timestamp be added to the predefined system properties?

Thanks,

Scott
