Yes ;) I'd like to be able to specify the version number in just one
place. So $V_MAJOR$ would be major version number, $V_MINOR$ ... etc.
Then tell the tool to find-and-replace the tokens in files where the
tokens are known to be.

This would make the release procedure easier, in that the person doing
it doesn't have to edit the version number for the release in more than
one place. Currently, I think the numbers appear in:
* src/version.in
* src/TortoiseSVNSetup/VersionNumberInclude.in.wxi
* src/TortoiseSVNSetup/MakeMsiSub.in.bat (twice) (they'd be in there so
the rename from Setup.msi to TortoiseSVN-x.y.z....msi happens automatically)
* www/version.txt

Ideally, they'd only be in one place, and the first thing the build
script would do is read the file and substitute, so the builder person
doesn't run the risk of forgetting in one or more places. I guess it's
not a need, but a nice-to-have...?
