This means maintaining the release number in two places, because it's
already deduced at build time from subversion/include/svn_version.h.

Is there another way to do this, such that we can avoid the "two
masters" problem?

Also, can you write a log message, the way you'd want to read about it
in a commit message? (See the HACKING file for more on log messages.)

From reading your paragraph, and the patch, I _sort_ of understand
what's going on, but not quite -- it seems you haven't just changed
the way we call AC_INIT and AC_OUTPUT (as your paragraph implies), but
also added new calls to macros that were not called before. A
complete log message might clear this up.
