I see you've already committed the changes, which I still disagree with
... I don't like the fact that someone has to remember to update the
configure.in and autoconf it to change the version number.  We already
have the mess with template files, why not create a VERSION file that
could just as easily be read in by configure, without having to do an
autoconf, to change the version?
