Hello,

it would be nice, if the same time could be used for
initialization of \year, \month, \day, and \time
as for the default /CreationDate.

The initialization of \year, ... is done in function
get_date_and_time() in files "pdf(e)texextra.c" that
are automatically generated in the Makefile from
file "lib/texmfmp.c". That would make such a patch a little
nasty.
  The local variable "clock" of get_date_and_time()
could be stored in a global variable that is reused
by printcreationdate() instead of calling time(NULL) again.

Yours sincerely
  Heiko <oberdiek@uni-freiburg.de>
