Surely that can be changed to above doxy-wrapper call.

Any script using 'doxygen doc/Doxyfile' won't break, the created html 
files would just lack the date.

If you care about that, one could also leave the 'HTML_TIMESTAMP = YES' 
in the Doxyfile and just add 'HTML_TIMESTAMP = NO' to the doxy-wrapper.

That way, everyone using the doxy-wrapper gets a reproducible output 
(with the git revision) and nothing changes for those directly calling 
'doxygen doc/Doxyfile'.
