I think it is a fair idea that certainly would be nice to users to allow them
to see what differences there are between the stock version and the one they
use.

I figure that need to be a plain text for human consumption since it can then
be basically anything depending on what package/distro/OS that would set it...

I think we should also make a recommendation to keep the string shorter than
70 characters or so, as otherwise it risks getting quite unredable.

You have patch lying around for adding this?
