You could actually record this changelist number/date information for
each executable or for each part of you code base which you test.
Say, for test1, you'd record which version of each source file
used, place that information in test1.log together with the
results of that test, and store *that* in vcs. Thus you'd
have a log of which version's of sources were used during
each test passed.

Ah, you anticipated my "store *that* in vcs" ;)
