Yes, I think that's what Mark meant. I like the idea I just wasn't
sure I wasn't missing some downside since we'd be taking the macro
out of $TOPDIR/include/rw/_config.h and moving it to the generated
config header in $BUILDDIR. I.e., it won't be possible to grep for
the macro in the freshly downloaded/extracted sources to find the
version -- see my comments below:

But unless someone does come up with a problem I'll go ahead and
cook up something along these lines.
