Perhaps you could do something like we do for JMeter.

For release builds, the version information must be provided on the
Ant command-line, and is this is used to update a class file
containing the version details, as well as being used for the
directory and archive file names.

For nightly builds on Hudson, the version is set to the current SVN revision.
[This makes it easy to tell what is actually in the build]

The SVN revision is also added to release builds as part of the
version information that is displayed in Help/About.

If the version information is not provided to Ant, then the version
defaults to including the current date.
