I have been thinking about it some more - I am not a big fan of putting 
build information into the naming screen. This takes focus from it's 
purpose, people might not know what it means etc.

For people flashing the machines I think they can use 'Ctrl+Alt+F2' to 
get to that information.

For the other scenarios I still think the approach described in [1] is a 
helpful addition. Dextrose has done this already, can somebody point to 
the patches for that?
