i wonder..
when does the version number of neomutt advance?
or are we stuck with "1.7.0" until mutt updates?

also, i see most programs identify with "$name $version"
so i'd expect to see "neomutt -v" show this:
"NeoMutt 1.7.0 (yyyymmdd)"

but even when "yyyymmdd" shows the date of
the latest patch then an additional data info
would still be nice to identify the "build date".

$ neomutt -v | head -1
NeoMutt 1.7.0 (yyyymmdd) (build: yyyymmdd)

to compare:
$ vim --version | head -2
VIM - Vi IMproved 8.0 (2016 Sep 12, compiled Oct 10 2016 20:16:13)
Inklusive der Korrekturen: 1-27

mind you, i'd rather see those info on
*one* line as well, using yyyy-mm-dd dates:
VIM 8.0.0027 (2016-09-12) (compiled 2016-10-10 20:16:13)

so.. what will make the neomutt version
change from 1.7.0 to 1.7.1? ;)
