force the use of UPDATED for every update:

UPDATED=ISO-date-plus-HMS
SECURITY_UPDATED=same as above, but not updated all the time.

We need to use chronologies because we can't make a general routine to figure
out whether one version+patchlevel is newer than another version+patchlevel.  It
just can't be done universally since versions can be totally renumbered.  The
only thing that's truly monotonic in our case is time :)

That's the only way to figure out if a security update is really needed and be
theoretically sure of it.
