Would be good to heed Kevin Brown's comment about checking
for the version file in the archive and falling back to the
Makefile VERSION definition, to allow tests using old as well
as new archives to work, without keeping both old and new jars
Also gives customers more time to remove their workaround
processes back to using only the tar and the jar. ;^p

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
