Last edit date is problematic: currently quickbook sort of supports that,
but it's the last edit date of the main quickbook file: and if that's just a
bunch of [include]'s then that's not very helpful :-(

I have a long standing feature request/bug report on this, but I suspect
we'd have to make the changes ourselves to get it fixed.
