There's a "stamping" facility that we've tinkered with in Ant where ant
can write something into a file, but I'd highly recommend against
preprocessing of the java source files.

Instead of XML, this sounds like a good place for a properties looking
file. The file could contain a single line "version=1.0.1" and be read
in via java.util.Properties (or just directly and parsed). In C, I'm
sure that there is a way to include it in.
