This might spark a bigger question on the @version tag altogether.
Let me say that the version tag doesn't make sense if the tool doesn't
manage the version number.  It also doesn't make sense if the tool uses
the same number for all files checked in at the same time.

Perhaps it would be best to remove it.  I don't think anyone is using it
for anything other than documentation.
