I know how to bump up the build number but do you really want it bumped up
every time the script is run.  I think not.  You want it bumped up once,
every time there is a change - not the 10 or 20 times one might rebuild
while working on something.  Do you want the published version to go from
0.7.1 to 0.7.24 to 0.7.29, etc?

I assume you're doing this, or did you think I am doing it?
