Currently if any change isn't committed, the project will just add a `-dirty' suffix to the commit checksum which is printed into the paper at the end of the abstract (this is from the the `--dirty' option that the project passes onto `git describe').

But this is not enough and can easily go unnoticed! To encourage people to commit their changes, a warning should be printed after building the PDF which tells the user that there are uncommitted changes. We can further strengthen this with a configure option (for example `--run-committed'!). When this option is called, if there are uncommitted changes, the project shouldn't build at all.

This task was suggested by Nadia Tonello.
