Although we've avoided putting a version number into the existing binary format
due to compatibility concerns, adding a comment to tzdata.zi shouldn't be so
constrained. How about the attached patch? It prepends the following comment
line to tzdata.zi in the current development version:
# version 2017c-18-ga5a40b4
Here, "2017c-18-ga5a40b4" has the same meaning as in the file 'version': release
2017c plus 18 updates, with a Git checksum of a5a40b4. If the working files have
uncommitted changes, the version string has "-dirty" appended.
