You could do it indirectly by saving your command history (a good idea 
in any case :-) ),  doing {something} to dump it to a file, and 
sorting/seeking to see in what order you created items.

Or, if you're really creative ^_^,  write some sort of script/function 
which automatically creates a metafile (e.g. if the variable is VAR, the 
metafile is .VARtime) from the output of date().
