You can't have any dashes in either epoch/version/release, so you
wouldn't be able to have ISO dates in the rpm filename.

But since you're going to not match 1005 the tarball's name with the
EVR of the package, you could do with the tarball's naming what you
want (within reason).

You could even add a capital "D" or a greek eta in front of it. :)
