It is sometimes not easy to recognize when changes in the svn /trunk/phase3/includes/api are going live: The only way at the moment to keep track of enhancements and bugfixes is to look at *all* timestamps in action=help&version - a rather boring task considering the size of the help page.
Please add a revision timestamp for the whole API for easier tracking (newest modification date of all modules - this can be added for example in the "info" value that's empty at the moment or in a new "timestamp" value).
A better option is just to include the MediaWiki version plus revision number. You can also obtain this information through Special:Version.
I'll add the revision number.
When assigning bugs, please remember to change the Assign-To field and status.

Sorry, relatively new here. FWIW, I did change the bug's status to ASSIGNED.
The attached patch does exactly what you asked for:
MediaWiki 1.11alpha (r23501)
ApiMain: $Id: ApiMain.php 22500 2007-05-28 06:59:19Z yurik $
ApiBase: $Id: ApiBase.php 23358 2007-06-25 05:44:33Z yurik $
Applied in r23502.
