If you're in charge of the source, you can copy the
version number yourself into some location, and use

If someone else is in charge (e.g., you're using
some random library), then there's no guarantee
you're using tz source as opposed to an independent

It might be nice to have a better way to get version
number, though I'd say it's more important to do
that for the data than for the source code.
