bzimport set Reference to bz35885.

Git doesn't support keywords like this. To see when a file was last modified one will have to check the git repository.

In a similar fashion, also returns $Id$ in its version tags. If this feature is deprecated due to the conversion to Git, the output should be cleaned up or report a clear-cut error, if possible.

I believe we should kill all getVersion() stuff in API with fire. A feature should either work flawlessly or not be there at all. Since there appears to be no convenient way to doit in Git and since nobody uses these versions anyway, this stuff must die.
