Indeed it would.

If I had a better brain and memory, and didn't have to run so many projects
in parallel I could probably cope OK.   But when trying to pick up the
threads of a project from several weeks/months ago the date-stamping in
Splus together with facilities like
      objects.summary( order = "dataset.date" , data.class='function' )
makes it much quicker and easier to work out exactly what I did and in what

It would be great to have similar facilities in R.
